Wyatt & Jack
Muddy says: They’re bright, they’re bold and certainly unique. From bouncy castle to brilliant bags, Wyatt & Jack are the Island’s sustainable brand with an edge (soft ones, mind!)
When is a bag more than a bag? When it’s made from bouncy castle, of course! No, I’ve not gone mad. Fabulous Isle of Wight outfit Wyatt & Jack take upcycling to the next level with their innovative use of children’s playthings. Using the remnants of once-beloved bouncy castles, inflatables, deckchairs and other quirky sourced material, they create incredibly unique and utterly show-stopping bags for any occasion.
You can choose from a range of styles such as rolltop rucksacks, stand up wash bags and roomy XL totes, you name it… they can make it.
Some of the stand out pieces from the collection include Sacrilege. What was once an inflatable Stone Henge (I kid you not!) was originally commissioned by the Mayor of London’s Office to Turner Prize-winning artist Jeremy Deller. The inflatable travelled the world before heading to retirement and becoming a unique set of bags, washbags and continuing its cultural journey of usefulness. A good chance to get a piece of double bubble history!
Another great thing about the bags is because they are all made from bouncy castle, they are also waterproof making them an ideal beach bag to turn heads on the shoreline.
To get your hands on a piece from this fabulous indie brand head to the website or check out the flagship store on Ryde’s quirky Union Street (where there are one of kind pieces not online as well). You can even take your old inflatables into them for recycling or to create a bag made from happy holiday memories. Want to see more?
