My 5 Favorite Ethical Backpacks: Made by Ethical Fashion Brands

where great taste meets ethical wanderlust

Eco Friendly, Recycled Backpack Made from Discarded Fabric Remnants (Socially & Environmentally Responsible Brand)
By: Bee Keeper

Why I Like This

BeeKeeper backpacks are made from remnant fabrics sourced from local suppliers as ‘waste’ fabric from the major garment factories in Cambodia. The sale of each backpack supports one Cambodian child through one year of English classes. Not only do these backpacks represent the change we want to see in the world, they are also super cute, unique and tell a story that no other backpack does.

Handmade, Fair Trade & Charitable Backpack – Made from Scratch by Women in Northeast India
By: The Fabric Social

Why I Like This

The Fabric Social have recently launched their first ever range of bags designed by Siami X Siami. The bags feature handwoven tribal puan fabric from Mizoram, North East India. The fabric is woven and the bags crafted by conflict-affected women in Mizoram and are now for sale via pre-order. This versatile fold-over backpack is the ‘Lawma Pack’ which means ‘happy’ in Mizo. How could it get any better than this?

100% Cotton, Twill Snap Backpack (Environmentally & Socially Responsible Brand)

Why I Like This

These bags are built to last with durable fabrics and designed to get you through your busy everyday life. Not only are they super styling, Everlane are rocking the world of ethical fashion with their deeply rooted actions of radical transparency through all of their operations. Radical transparency man, that’s what we are all about!

Hand Dyed, 100% Locally Sourced Cotton Sport Backpack – Handmade in Ghana by YEVU Seamstress

Yevu are a young and funky brand making eclectic handmade clothing and accessories in Ghana. Working with small producers and artisanal manufacturers, Yevu are working towards improving conditions of urban poverty through the economic empowerment of disadvantaged micro-enterprises. This fun sports backpack features traditional West African wax print fabric from Accra and locally sourced, hand dyed cotton.

Handmade, Fairly Traded Backpack with Vegetable Tanned Leather

Why I Like This

Among their very sleek shoes, Nisolo produce some pretty amazing bags and accessories. Nisolo grew to support small producers in Peru to access global markets, operating as a social impact fashion label. Cute backpacks with a positive impact = perfection.
