Travelling will always present a paradox to those who want to care for the planet. We are all explorers who want to see the world, but travelling is a major source of carbon emissions. In this reality, we must make our footprint minimal.
PROJECTKIN is a movement in response to this paradox. We want to create better alternatives for the mindful traveler. We do this by using materials that replace plastics, by making products made to last and by creating design that becomes even more beautiful with use.
Our mantra is ‘TRAVEL MINDFULLY’. While we cannot travel without a footprint, we can all do our part to protect the planet. That means using the better alternative where we can – whether it is transport, luggage or food, we believe in a world where travel is still a source of happiness for us all while done in a environmentally conscious way. Our beliefs are backed by action. We spent 3 years experimenting and perfecting the use natural materials for luggage – and we have created the first product in the world that avoids use of pollutive plastics for hard-case luggage. We hope to inspire the luggage industry to follow our lead.
FROM CAUSE TO ACTION
Sustainability is – unlike any other luggage brand – at the forefront of all our design choices.
We shy away from plastics where possible (only our wheels need to be plastic to retain world-class durability). We use plastic-free packaging. We use hemp and flax as these are the most sustainable raw materials (others use polyester, cotton with more than 5 times the environmental footprint).
We are passionate about creating high quality products in collaboration with world-class designers who are passionate about providing a better alternative to consumers in terms of sustainability.
We are bold in our use of new materials and want to embrace the use of the natural expression of materials such as flax, hemp and leather. Our products are designed to become even more beautiful as they are used, in opposition to the ‘buy new’ culture of the luggage industry today.
The only truly sustainable choice is to make products that last – and to make them using the most sustainable material possible. We truly believe we have made the best product with the highest quality available today.
Our vision is to permanently change the standards for products and the way people travel for the good of the planet.
We built our concept around three core values: aesthetics, mindfulness and exploration. We believe in the power of creating beautifully designed products that people want to keep. We search for better alternatives in terms of materials that do not harm our planet. We acknowledge that travelling is a source of joy and unification across our globe.
