DOGURI has launched ‘DOGURI X PLEATS MAMA Eco pick-pick bag’ in collaboration with ‘PLEATS MAMA’, a brand that has built resource circulation ecosystem. Eco pick-pick bag is made from recycled yarn. The recycled yarn is made through a series of processes of crushing Jeju’s waste PET bottles into small flakes and processing them into polyester chips. Four waste PET bottles with a capacity of 500ml were utilized to make one Eco pick-pick bag. The Eco pick-pick bag is eco-friendly in the way that there is no remnant fabric that is discarded because it is molded and knitted one by one instead of cutting and sewing fabric collectively woven.
In addition to the Eco pick-pick bag, DOGURI launched ‘DOGURI pattern socks’ made with recycled yarn extracted from waste PET bottles.
Since Eco pick-pick bag and DOGURI pattern socks contribute to the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions and waste landfill, and minimize negative effects on human body and nature by saving petroleum resources, they can be representative upcycling products.

DOGURI’s sincerity is not limited to the production of eco-friendly products. DOGURI conducted 〈What’s in your pocket〉campaign on June 5, 2021, in commemoration of the Environment Day.
