Sustainability

We constantly work to ensure a sustainable product with care for both humans, animals and environment. Our focus is continuously to change traditional choices to sustainable alternatives.

We use certified sustainable leather from a well-reputed Italian tannery. Their processing of hides carries several certifications and acknowledgements. Among others the German ecolabel Blauer Engel and the Leather Working Group gold rated award which recognizes good ethical, environmental and safety practice.

We use 100% Oeko-Tex 100 certified cotton lining minimizing use of harmful chemicals. Packaging and hangtags come from FSC-certified sources. It goes without saying that we sort our waste with the purpose of recycle.

We strive everyday to be better. To do better. There is always more to achieve and ways we can improve to benefit our environment. Please, keep in mind that we are not perfect. Although we work our best to do better than we did yesterday.

Playful coloured lining

A signature feature in our KONTAINERS are the colourful Oeko-Tex 100 certified cotton lining. Just as much as we love a classy outside appearance, we cannot resist giving the inside character with a printed pattern.

Have you ever owned a black jacket, blazer or coat? We have. And the very one that started the idea, had the most beautiful coloured print pattern inside. It was love at first sight. We asked ourselves, howcome this is not used in leather bags?

It adds just that special surprise moment when you open the bag. A feeling of happiness. And not least making it easier to find your belongings. So we stopped wondering and just made it happen.

We change the lining regularly according to leather colours and simply our mood. When that specific print is gone, it is gone. So every bag is unique and comes in a limited edition of only 100 pieces per model.

Rock solid zipper

Every bag deserves a high quality zipper. There is nothing worse than a zipper that runs poorly and uneven. In every KONTAINER we use Excella zippers from the Japanese company YKK.

Have you looked at the zip puller of your jeans recently? There is a good chance it says YKK. Are you curious to know why? Check out this little funny video.

Excella is a high-end collection within YKK . It is not only incredible durable but also beautiful aesthetic wise (says the nerdy-nerdy ones. We know that the majority don’t give it much thought. So don’t worry, you’re not alone). Another nerdy detail. Every teeth on an Excella zip is polished to avoid sharp edges. Meaning no scratches on hands or pulling threads on clothes.

From the very beginning we have sticked to using YKK Excella zippers. Inside and outside. Not once have we received a complaint about a broken zip. This actually says it all. Don’t be afraid to stuff your Kontainer too much. It might not look pretty, but the zipper will do you proud.
