Meet the Collective: Metamorphic Gear

I hear it from customers all the time... "why can't stuff be eco and cute at the same time? why is it one or the other?". As a designer of my own eco fashion line, SPUN, I try to make garments that offer the best of both worlds. I firmly believe that you don't need to make a choice when deciding to bring more green into your life.

This is why I was so excited to meet Lindsay Lawrence, the man behind the new Seattle brand, Metamorphic Gear. Lindsay's vision is to morph the two worlds of style and eco into his products.

"Lindsay is a world traveler, sailor and lover of the outdoors. Inspired by the outdoor equipment that he used while hiking, Lindsay wanted to design a range of stylish but reliable eco-friendly products for the outdoor enthusiast to use in their urban lifestyle. Having been involved with sailing both professionally and recreationally, Lindsay witnessed the durability of sail material before it was sent to landfill so decided to give it a new lease of life as the major ingredient in Metamorphic Gear’s products. Lindsay’s drive to create a company that is earth minded and forward thinking while always maintaining its integrity has attracted a team of likeminded folks. We are driven to innovate, create and deliver stylish, upcycled products you will be happy to bring into your urban life."

We proudly carry Metamorphic Gear's "Slate" Messenger Bags in both the solid colors (green, blue and red $130) as well the Limited Edition colors $150. Each bag is made using upcycled sails and used truck tarp materials.

Don't you love all the pockets?!?


You gotta see these bags in person so come on in to SPUN Sustainable Collective and take a look for yourself. Congratulations Lindsay on doing a remarkable job with these bags. We can't wait to see all the new styles you have cooking up!
