Award winning sustainable bags
Made entirely from recycled materials
Handcrafted by artisans in East London

Every material we have used to create this bag is certified, fully traceable and helps you contribute to a waste-free future.

Global Recycled Standard certified, the softest recycled leather. Beautifully crafted, our shiny leather is made in Italy from tannery offcuts and trimmings that would have otherwise been discarded by the fashion industry.

Our luxury recycled cotton is made from discarded clothes that can no longer be repaired. Working with our extended team in Italy, the garments are hand selected by skilled workers and after a series of recycling processes, a new fiber is obtained ready to be transformed again into our luxury recycled cotton.

Oekotex Standard 100 certified, the tapes of our polyester zips are made from single-use plastic bottles which have a short lifespan but for hundreds of years harm our wildlife and oceans. The plastic waste is broken down and pulverised before being spun into yarn and made into zips.

Every BEEN London order is packaged by our small team and shipped to you from our Studio in East London.
