VALUES BEHIND OUR BAGS AND BACKPACKS

HEART MISSION

We all know that plastic is a huge problem for the environment, but also directly for us humans. In this respect, we protect our environment directly through our commitment and as one of the pioneers in the field of handbags and accessories with production under the fairest conditions.

WITH CONFIDENCE

A large part of our products are produced in Cambodia under the umbrella of the World Fair Trade Organization. This is supplemented by backpacks and belt bags made from recycled ocean-bound plastic. This has led to our being named an official partner of the UN Ocean Decade in 2022.

1. HEART FOR OUR WATERS AND NATURE

Our commitment to oceans, lakes and rivers:

  • In Cambodia, upcycling and recycling are central themes to avoid waste and create products from recycled materials.
  • We use recycled rice and cement sacks and mosquito nets mostly from near lakes and rivers (rive- and lakebound plastic) to contribute to a more sustainable future.
  • Our products stand for the reduction of water pollution from plastic and the reduction of CO2 emissions.

Extension of the range:

  • In mid-2023 we will expand our range to include high-quality backpacks and belt bags.
  • These are made from both recycled PET bottles and recycled Ocean Bound plastic.
  • Ocean bound plastic was defined by University of Georgia professor Jenna Jambeck, a recognized marine researcher in the field of marine litter and ocean plastic.

Importance of Ocean Conservation:

  • According to Jambeck's research, the vast majority of ocean plastic comes from the world's coasts.
  • Although this is only a small portion of the global landmass, it is home to two billion people who have built their cities and livelihoods near the oceans.

Plastic recycling from European ports:

  • Our passion and commitment in the field of upcycling and recycling goes so far that we also recycle lashing straps that were in shipping containers from German deep sea ports such as Hamburg, Bremerhaven and Wilhelmshaven and process them into shoulder straps.
  • Otherwise, thousands of tons of ratchet straps would simply be burned because potential hairline cracks would not allow further use.

Recognizing our efforts:

  • We are proud to have been named Official Partner of the UN Ocean Decade in 2022.
  • This recognizes our actions and commitment to the health of water bodies.

2. HEART FOR PEOPLE
