When a brand looks to use sustainably sourced materials, sometimes they have to think outside the box. Or think about what the box is made of and then use that instead. That’s exactly what UK based vegan brand Kula decided to do with their stylish collection of bags and backpacks.
Registered with the Vegan Society, the UK based brand use a unique and environmentally friendly reinforced paper material across their entire collection.
The main body of each bag is crafted using a reinforced paper material called “Texon Vogue”, which has been accredited by both the Forestry Stewardship Council and Oeko-Tex, professional bodies which ensure that the material is responsibly sourced and produced. The material is not only washable and water resistant but is also as strong and as durable as canvas.
The concept behind the collection, which features five bags including backpacks and shoppers, is to provide unique vegan alternatives to everyday bags. Each Kula Bag is designed to be practical and stylish whilst also being environmentally friendly. Check out the debut collection below.
