ansvar is the first backpack to be certified by both the Fairtrade Standard and the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). It is exclusively made from sustainable materials such as organically produced cotton canvas and vegetable-tanned leather as well as buckles free from chrome and nickel. The dyed organic cotton canvas is naturally made waterproof with an organic wax. In Scandinavia “ansvar” means responsibility. Thus, the concept of our backpacks unites sustainability and Scandinavian design in one product.
This backpack is water-repellent through its beeswax impregnation. Additionally we can recommend a GOTS certified impregnation spray that is suitable for a refreshing or optimization of the water repellency of all our ansvar backpacks: http://impregno.de/produkt/oberflaechen/textil/ (also avalaible on Amazon)
