Made for Our backpacker design team created this backpack for travelling the world on foot for days at a time with complete peace of mind, thanks to its padlockable zip. The case-type opening will let you access and store the contents of your bag easily. The integrated rain pocket will protect the bag contents from rain.
Mass-dyeing involves introducing pigments during manufacturing of the thread and is able to reduce the significant environmental impact of the dye associated with water (consumption & pollution). There are environmentally friendly dyes.
Specifically on the TRAVEL 100 backpack?
In 2019, Émilien, our backpack engineer, chose a fabric for the inside of the backpack using the dope dye process.
As such, the backpack uses 12% less CO2 compared to if it had been dyed in a traditional way.
For this backpack we aim for 100% eco-design. This is why we already have areas for improvement!
In 2020, the outer sides of the backpack will switch to using dope dye to save a further 7% in terms of CO2And in 2021, we will use this process across the whole backpack to save a further 17%!
