    Clothing brand The North Face and eco-fashion designer
    RÆBURN have come together to turn old tents into bags.

    It's great to see the fashion world starting to tackle recycling and reusing materials in the mainstream, but with prices ranging from £80 to £135 is it accessible enough?

    What other initiatives do you think fashion designers should start to take? For example, should the primary focus be cutting down our use of polyester - or do you think reusing materials is a good first step to take?
