More About This Experience

You see them everywhere - the iconic up-cycled accessories made from cement bags. Ever been tempted to get one? With Backstreet Academy, you can custom make your own laptop sleeve, messenger bags, wallets and much more. Together with a seasoned seamstress set against a vibrant workshop let your creativity flow as you shape, sew and craft your very own cement bag. You start by choosing what you want your bag to be made of. Will it be the classic cement elephant brand, or used fish feed bags or fertilizers bag or a little bit of everything? Indicate your laptop/bag size and cut out a cardboard template. Next, under the guidance of the seamstress, you cut the recycled material, and sew together pieces of the template to achieve your final bag. We encourage you to get creative, you have all the tools and materials at your disposal - get crazy!
