Sword & Plough: Repurposed for a Purpose
Sword & Plough: Repurposed for a Purpose

Our mission is to create veteran employment opportunities, reduce waste and strengthen civil-military understanding by profitably selling fashionable bags and accessories made from repurposed military materials. Our name originates from the ancient saying, “to turn swords into plough shares,” which means, to take military technologies and materials and apply them to peaceful civilian applications.
Sword & Plough is a quadruple bottom line bag company that works with veterans to repurpose military surplus fabrics into stylish bags.
