Chilean design firm Modulab Ecodiseño reuses movie film to make fashionable bags. The film is woven using a technique popular in Mexico, then made into handsome handbags.

Modulab Ecodiseño added the movie film handbags to their existing collection of bags, mats and totes. Those are made of recycled movie billboard banners. The company works with Disney, Fox, Bazooka Films, Warner and other large companies to glean the materials for their products.

Implications - Modulab is currently working alongside major film production studies like Disney Fox and Warner Brothers to obtain the necessary materials for this fashion project. Produced in small shops in the area of Santiago de Chile, the eco-friendly bags ensure no roles goes unused.
