Entry Description

This project was made by Alexis Barnett and I in our sophomore year. It was an assignment for our Design II class. The project was about creating a product that would help out refugees; however, we could only use materials that were used that semester in the class. We decided to use a plastic portfolio bag we carried our supplies on, turning this jacket into a upcycled project since we repurposed a plastic bag. We also incorporated a big compartment in the back where people can place their belongings. The Jacket Backpack is also waterproof which also serves as a rain protection.
