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, luxury full-grain recycled leather. Beautifully crafted, our recycled leather is made 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.

Working with with a social enterprise in the Netherlands, the structure of our bags is made from a felt padding using discarded company textiles and corporate uniforms from the likes of IKEA and KLM.

Blue Sign 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.
