Founded by fashion designer Verena Michels, Weather Underground reduces petroleum usage through plant based plastics. CAPEBAG was launched in April 2021. This hybrid of raincape and bag is made of regrowing ressources, 100% biodegradable in a certified timeframe and produced with waterproof, ultrasonic seams in Germany.
Weather Underground promotes a mobile lifestyle with aesthetic, functional and ethical qualities, while tackling pollution caused by countless throwaway ponchos. These massproduced items are dropped in natural reservoires or city streets after short rain showers.
It is proof of concept for a detoxing approach in supply chain management, where compostable sheets from the agricultural sector are transformed into fashionable wearables. Weather Underground is nurtured by innovative collaborations with the local packaging sector and biomaterial suppliers.
The ultimate intention is to supply CAPEBAG to cultural biennals and festivals, to conquer pollution where it happens. Weather Underground is ready to provide a joyful solution to keep visitors dry during postpandemic rainshowers.
