Kirsten Miller is a qualified seamstress, and in 1998 she founded Atlantic Blue, a design company focusing on one-off unique clothing, accessory and product designs. Atlantic Blue aims to produce distinctive designs using mainly recycled materials and natural fabrics.
The range of handmade, up-cycled bags and accessories, are made from recycled seatbelts that would otherwise have been destroyed, the material is collected, cleaned and cut to size before being lovingly stitched together in Kirsten’s workshop in St Ouen.
As innovative accessories go, these designs are eye catching with an industrial flair and the adjustable seatbelt straps and buckle fasteners mean the bags are both secure and practical as well as an on-trend statement piece. Every bag is made by hand, a one- off original and as Kirsten is keen to highlight, vegan friendly and completely sustainable with all materials sourced locally on the island by the designer herself.
With more interest in recycling and sustainable living than ever before, Atlantic Blue really showcase how fashion and up-cycling can be merged to create something both original, stylish and highly versatile.
