Of all those items you carry when you leave home, your laptop, MacBook or iPad is likely to be one of the most valued. Whether it's the money you spent on that new MacBook, you run your business off a laptop or priceless photographs and other memories stored - your device needs protecting!
Most laptop sleeves are padded and protected with a virgin plastic, Polyethylene (PE) foam which is a petroleum based material. When we design and develop new products we give equal consideration to style, functionality and environmental sustainability. Durability and long lasting fabrics are a key consideration when launching a new product but we are equally excited by innovations to use natural fibres and materials.
With the rise of fast fashion, the textile industry has a bad reputation and we're on a mission to prove that you can be a force for good.
We live in a throwaway culture today, garments are worn a couple of times and discarded. Alongside this, the textile industry has an environmental impact during the manufacturing process too. Increasing amounts of industrial chemicals and pollutants risk contamination of freshwater ecosystems. With this considered, we got to work researching and testing natural fibres. Coir coconut fibres or coconut husk is a natural and renewable source and has all the natural properties needed to provide protection and padding.
