$248.00

STYLE & INSPIRATION

    Introducing the first and all new unisex work bag "Moby" made from 100% compressed layers of handmade paper, coated with Mulberry tree leaves pulp on cotton canvas and glazed to mimic the properties of real leather. Inspired by "Moby" the vegan singer-songwriter has been advocating for veganism and animal-rights with enthusiasm, through his music (1999 album, Play) and later by donating profits to animal welfare from his LA restaurant Little Pine, which opened in 2015 and serves vegan comfort foods.

    We especially designed this bag for all you animal lovers so you can now flaunt your values stylishly whether at home or at work. Use the Moby for your laptop and work essentials and add a touch of classic with this simple doctors style satchel in your closet.

    Materials:

    Laminated Handmade Paper backed with cotton canvas, MulbTex TM is a patented technique of our artisans to make handmade paper using Mulberry leaves pulp. Mulberry Leather or MulbTex TM has been used for centuries in Korea to make lampshades and other traditional artifacts. It is silicone based and plastic free. 

    Mulberry leaves are the staple diet of the silkworm. So we pulp the leaves for the MulbTex without their elements traveling through the bodies of silkworms, who would be killed when their cocoons are spun to silk to avoid them breaking the strands to escape and fly away as moths. Essentially we are processing the plants before they are processed through an animal’s stomach making it much more environmentally and compassionately reasonable. 

    Origin:

    Made with love in South Korea
    Ethical & Sweatshop-free
