On bottles, bags and Bottletop

Cameron Saul launched the Bottletop Foundation in 2002 with his father Roger, founder of British luxury fashion brand Mulberry. At the heart of the campaign was a handbag made from recycled bottle tops in Africa that was lined with Mulberry leather in Europe. The bestselling design was heralded as a sensation by the international fashion press, generating local employment and raising vital funds for grass roots education projects in Africa. The Bottletop Fashion Company was founded in 2012 by Oliver Wayman and Cameron Saul and funds the operation of the Bottletop Foundation, using contemporary art and music to raise funds and awareness for education projects that tackle teenage health issues such as HIV/AIDS, drug abuse and teenage pregnancy. The Bottletop Foundation supports young people in Malawi, Mozambique, Rwanda, Brazil and the UK. @Bottletoppers
