Sustainably Made Backpacks
Not only are these modern backpacks stylish, but they’re also sustainable. All of our felt backpacks are made with sustainable materials including merino wool felt and vegetable-tanned leather. The combination of these materials makes for a stylish, ethical backpack that’s also durable to stand up to everyday wear and tear.
Merino wool is rapidly renewable, biodegradable, recyclable, and can be produced naturally with minimal negative impact. It’s also naturally water resistant and holds up against dirt and stains, meaning you won’t have to replace it every year or two like typical backpacks. The veg tan leather accents are buttery smooth and aged gracefully over time.
When you want a sustainable backpack built to last, you can’t go wrong with merino wool felt.
