Waxed backpacks for every day. No matter where that day takes you, beautiful, rugged vegan. UK designed and made in India from recycled cotton canvas, ethically sourced through local cooperatives
Cora + Spink started it’s journey in 2014 when Tim was looking at ways to make not only a really good bag – but a range of products that would be good and do good. When we think of backpacks, we automatically think of adventures, travel, holidays, good times, happy times. "As a production designer in the fashion industry my job was to travel the world seeking new suppliers, new fabrics and fibres, new techniques and ideas. Exploring, meeting people, seeing the sights with a backpack firmly attached at all times. But I always had a goal… so when the time was right, sometime in November 2014 I set about bringing together all the people I’d met whilst travelling, and give them a project we could work on together" That project turned out to be Cora + Spink. A project with a simple concept. Make brilliant backpacks where every person involved was happy.
Every Cora + Spink product from the backpacks to the wallets make use of recycled cotton canvas, ethically sourced through local cooperatives. This hand spun and hand woven cotton is made from garment industry offcuts, waste and recycled clothes. It is natural and biodegradable whilst supporting a network of skilled workers through fair wages, business support and protection from exploitation
