how our bags are made and impact on the environment
we are (as are most people of our generation) very concerned about global warming and the impact of our busy lives on climate. however we don’t believe that the solution is to stop moving. we feel that the world is a much better place when filled with citizens who understand and tolerate other cultures. and it is only by travelling (and watching TV!) that we start to engender a curiosity and tolerance for other cultures.
a well-made bag made with high quality raw materials will last a long time:
we believe that by investing in a knomo that is made out of high quality and durable materials, you will be committing to a long term relationship that is likely to be far more environmentally responsible than countless short flings with cheap wannabees
suppliers: as a small company, we don’t have a sophisticated code of conduct, but we do have a personal relationship with all our suppliers. our team spend a great deal of time in the factories and so we get to know them personally. all these partners treat their employees with dignity and fairness and are committed to their health and welfare.
raw materials: knomo uses only premium leathers sourced from tanneries around the world. we have chosen these paticular leathers because of their superior quality, rich and vibrant colours and the unique and individual properties of each hide.
quality control & guarantee: our team does 100% quality control checks on all production to ensure that faults are kept to a minimum. less than one out every100 knomo bags conceive, requires any subsequent rehab. all knomo’s are guaranteed until their second birthday.
we are committed to investing in our design and development capability and improving the environmental impact of everything that we do.
