Disneyland Paris recently announced the release of an upcoming exclusive collection, including a limited edition of tote bags, duffel bags, briefcases, and pouches, all of which have been manufactured using the recycled tarp that covered Sleeping Beauty Castle through its renovation works at the Parisian Park.
Each of the 2300 collection’s pieces –which have been handmade and entirely manufactured by Ile de France-based company Bilum –will have a unique and exclusive design. This will be the perfect opportunity to acquire items that celebrate both the art and history of Disneyland Paris through its iconic Castle that is so admired by Guests.
Jean-David Marque, Merchandise & Retail Director at Disneyland Paris, commented the following regarding this historic Disney Parks collection:
We are particularly happy to launch this one-of-a-kind collection dedicated to Sleeping Beauty Castle –the icon of our destination-which will allow our fans to take home an authentic piece of magic. Besides, this project is for us an opportunity to collaborate with a local French company that shares Disneyland Paris’ environmental and social values.
This upcoming collection is part of Disneyland Paris’ ongoing commitment to reducing waste, protecting resources, and supporting the local economy. This project was developed in collaboration with BILUM, an Ile de France-based SMB — small and medium-sized business — that specializes in upcycling tarps and other materials to create unique leather goods.
Founder of the BILUM Company, Hélène de La Moureyre, said, “we are building the brands’ legacy using their own materials,” making these iconic pieces capture the essence and magic of Disneyland Paris in such a historic moment for the Park, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary. In addition, BILUM partly collaborated with an ESAT Establishments and Services of Assistance through Work -hosting people with disabilities) to develop Disneyland Paris’ collection.
This limited-edition collection of upcycled Disney Parks history will be sold at The Storybook Store on Main Street U.S.A. — located at Disneyland Park in Disneyland Paris — starting on September 9, 2022, while supplies last. Prices for these exclusive items will range from €30 to €140.
