ABOUT THE COLLABORATION
VISIT DHL IN MOTION
This limited edition collection is the result of multiple conversations about circular design and the possibilities of giving a new life to DHL Formula 1® trackside banners.
Our brilliant partners at DHL wanted to turn them into one-of-a-kind, unisex, collectible items that would combine our ‘impact first’ approach with the spirit and design aesthetic of Formula 1®.
THE ONE OF A KIND COLLECTION
The nature of the banner and the print makes every piece of this limited edition collection completely unique. We combined the bright yellow and red that DHL are famous for with the smooth black textures of our signature recycled materials to create a timeless collection.
There are only 23 sets available, in honour of the number of Formula 1® races for the 2022 season happening around the world.
Trackside banners are tricky to recycle, so the best use for them, really, is giving them a new life. The banners we used for the collection had a very glamorous previous life on the side of a Formula 1® circuit.
The challenge was to design a practical and fun collection taking into account all the properties of the banners and staying true to our core principles - zero waste pattern cutting, thinking about its end of life (no glue, only stitching) and working with corners in creative ways using stitching and folding techniques.
Like all of our bags, this very special collection has been handcrafted locally, just a stone's throw away from the BEEN London studio.
Each piece of The Circuit Collection has been made by our artisans in East London in one of the last bag workshops. This is Jana and her incredible team.
SUPPORTING A GREAT CAUSE
All proceeds from the collection are going to a social enterprise closely aligned with our values. Plastic Bank reduces the amount of plastic entering waterways and oceans by establishing ethical collection branches within 50 kilometres of oceans and waterways.
And here it is, our DHL x BEEN London collection! We hope you love it as much as we’ve loved creating it.
