ECONYL® RECYCLED NYLON

Up to 90% of all the rubbish in the sea is plastic. One of the worst culprits is nylon fishing nets - they don’t break down easily and harm marine life.

Our partner rescues the nets and nylon scraps, and sorts, cleans and purifies them. The regenerated nylon threads are then ready to be woven into textiles to create your beautiful backpack.

PREMIUM DETAILS

The zips are made from recycled plastic bottles, which is broken down and pulverised before being spun into yarn and made into zips. The innovative vegan ‘leather’ detailing is made from the unwanted peel and core of apples.

The apple waste is dried and ground into powder, mixed with a binder and pigment, and spread onto canvas, until it turns into a leather-like material.

MULTI-FUNCTIONAL

We've added a padded laptop pocket, a water bottle holder, and front and back zip pockets so your Vauxhall backpack can carry you from work to the gym and beyond. With dedicated space for all your personal items and accessories, this is the only backpack you'll ever need.
