Banner Man

The Story of Banner Man

Biji-biji Ethical Fashion's very own superhero championing urban waste Management in Kuala Lumpur.

Scene: Kuala Lumpur Eco Film Festival 2014

Mission: Turning banners into amazing products

Brief description:

Biji-biji is actively pursuing a mindset change in the city about how we look at waste materials. We are in the midst of developing a series of useful items that can be upcycled from things we throw away. We made tote bags, pouches, bean bags, stools & even a bag that could turn into a vertical garden from waste materials such as seatbelts and banners. 

Now it was time to spread the message to Kuala Lumpur to raise awareness about sustainability and social inclusion. Banner Man was born, from our humble residence in Harmony Hub 1, Bistari when he went into a lucid dream after working too hard in the day designing using banners and in his dream he got hit with a banner.

We Make Things: Once, when we were given a challange to make VIP door gifts which also needed a fancy bag and on a budget. Our solutions was a bag which is also the end product itself. You could transform the bag into a vertical garden for your home and grow your own food!

Biji-biji Initiative is a social enterprise that aims to champion sustainable living. This upcycled product has been skilfully produced using discarded PVC advertising banners. With the aim to raise awareness and to find creative solutions for the global waste problem, the banners have been given a second-life, saving them from ending up in a landfill. Thank you for being part of the solution. Due to our upcycling method, our Banner products come in various patterns subject to the banners available, making each a unique, one-of-a-kind item!

This square shaped Banner Tote Bag has an open top with large top carry handles. Perfect for everyday use.
