The canvas material we used in the body of our current line of bags is made from Recycled Polyester (rPET). It is certified by Cradle to Cradle
Discarded plastic bottles gathered from Haiti and Hondurus have been used as the recycled material. This effort has been spearheaded by Thread International with the purpose of cleaning up Haiti and Honduras’ environment, creating jobs, and alleviating poverty
The lining material of our current line of bags is a blend of Recycled Hemp and Organic Cotton
AlgaeThe innovative structural material we used inside our bags are partially made from algae
Do you know that algae absorbs water and air pollution (ex: CO2, Nitrogen and Phosphorus)? However, with the rise in global temperatures and human activities, we are now experiencing an uncontrollable increase in algae growth in our ecosystems
The algae based thermoplastic material we decided to use benefits the environment in the following ways:
• As a result of this thermoplastic production, fresh water eco-systems are being cleaned that are experiencing consistent algae problems
• Besides, a recently performed LCA study has proven that the algae based foam has 20 - 40 % fewer impact on our environment that regular plastic eva foam
Other plant based sources The vegan leather we used for trims and detailing is partly made from corn
Our bags are treated with Durable Water Repellant (DWR) finish that has absolutely no fluorochemicals or formaldehydes. This finish is safe and compliant with ZDHC MRSL and Oeko-Tex® Additionally, it is Blue-Sign® approved. Although not required, we are Prop65 compliant.
With sustainable solutions paired with timeless craftsmanship, our bags are the perfect blend of modern luxury with consciousness for our global eco system. Our design approach and intricate attention to details allows our bags to stand out as statement pieces with exceptional longevity and eternal style.
