Upcycled artistry signed BOTTLETOP

A brand launched with a mission to empower people and planet through sustainable design and creative culture

Co-founded in 2002 by Cameron Saul and Oliver Wayman, BOTTLETOP is a British luxury sustainable fashion brand with celebrity fans as diverse as Emma Watson, Arizona Muse and Annie Lennox. Its distinctive bags are made from upcycled metal ring pulls and Amazon zero-deforestation leather, produced ethically by skilled artisans, paid 45% more than the national industry average. BOTTLETOP began life with handbags made from upcycled bottle tops in Kenya, lined with leather offcuts. Through collaboration with Mulberry, they became international best-sellers, supporting artisans and funding health education for young people in Africa. The BOTTLETOP team then discovered the beauty and versatility of upcycled metal ring pulls and developed a signature chain mail fabric, the BOTTLETOP DNA of today. Offering the unique "Mistura" braiding design, the brand now has its own atelier and training programs in Brazil and Nepal. BOTTLETOP also created #TOGETHERBAND, a global movement which champions the UN's 17 Global Goals for a sustainable future, aiming to end poverty, inequality and climate change. Available at The Alpina Gstaad, these bands are made from reclaimed ocean plastic and decommissioned firearm metal, handcrafted by artisans and creating livelihoods for women in Nepal. Finally, the BOTTLETOP Foundation supports grassroots health, education and skills training projects.
