The full Kula collection is designed using Texon Vogue - a durable, practical and washable paper.
The material is accredited by both the Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC) and Oeko-Tex. The FSC is an international standard that ensures the material is sourced from responsibly managed forests that provide economic, environmental and social benefits. The Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification ensures that no harmful substances are used on the material.
The lining on all new bags is made from 100% recycled plastic bottles. 54% fewer CO2 emissions are generated during the production of this material compared to virgin polyester.
Using these material ensures all our products are not only 100% vegan, but are also much more sustainable than other faux leather and vegan options. Kula are proud to be registered with PETA. We continue to try and design durable styles using eco-friendly materials in order to decrease our environmental effect. Our aim is to create products that are functional, fashionable and sustainable.
Why we chose paper for our eco-friendly vegan bags and backpacks:
- Cruelty free, Sustainable, Eco-friendly, Durable.
- Very Lightweight, easy to carry and handle.
- It has a unique look and beauty.
- It can be washed, so no need to worry about marks and stains.
How to take care of your Kula bag or backpack
All our bags can be washed in typical home washing machines with the water temperature set to medium (about 40°C), using normal detergent (powder or liquid) without a fabric softener.
For bags with structural shape like the Salford Backpack, it is best to wash by hand to keep the bag in shape.
After washing, let the bag dry naturally but not under direct sun.
