Since the Recycle initiative launched in June, 2020, Deadly Ponies have been collecting pre-loved pieces from customers to repurpose and recycle in an effort to close the loop. Now, Deadly Ponies present their inaugural Recycle collection – handcrafted from 100% recycled leather, silk and solid brass in full circularity.
The first collection explores four limited edition pieces; a silk eye-mask, leather sunglasses case, leather coaster set and custom-designed brass hand crafted in collaboration with local artist, Hannah Valentine. In addition to the launch of the collection, Deadly Ponies pledge to donate 10% of profits to their 2020 partner, Dress For Success NZ, empowering women to experience financial freedom in New Zealand and re-enter the workforce.
Repurposing materials has been intertwined throughout the brand’s collections over the last 15 years, however, being able to do so on a larger scale has long been the ambition of the company’s Directors. The opening of their new custom-built atelier earlier this year has enabled this vision to come to life; with each product in the collection hand-crafted by Deadly Ponies’ small team of artisans.
The limited edition collection is available exclusively online for pre-order from Thursday 27th August, with the capsule available in Deadly Ponies stores from early September.
