Online shopping has a huge impact on the environment. While not all of our spending is bad, purchasing from brands that do not consider their impact on the planet can have devastating consequences. In fact, the UK is the fourth-largest producer of textile waste in Europe, so it’s safe to say that we could all do a little more to put the planet first.
If you are looking for ways to shop more sustainably, then purchasing an eco-friendly bag should be high on your priority list. A bag is an essential everyday item and one that you might have to replace often if you fail to make a high-quality and sustainable purchase. At Zatchels, we’re proud to have created a wide range of stylish and eco-friendly bags that stand the test of time. Let’s dive right into why you should choose Zatchels if you are looking to invest in an eco-friendly bag…
Made In England
You might have guessed from some of our quintessentially British designs, but every Zatchels bag is handmade in England using high-quality British leather. We are able to keep our carbon footprint low by limiting the amount of resources we ship across the globe and our British base also means we don’t have to create excess emissions to ship your new bag to you.
Sustainable Production Processes
All of our leather bags are handmade to order. Though this can mean that time between placing and receiving your order from us may be a little longer than if you purchased from a fast fashion brand, our manufacturing processes are significantly more sustainable.
Handmaking all of our eco-friendly bags has two benefits. Firstly, we only hold the materials and stock we actually need, reducing the amount of waste our eco-friendly bags create. Secondly, unlike mass production methods, when we make our bags by hand we don’t use any nasty chemicals or processes that unpleasantly pollute the environment.
While our eco-friendly bags are handmade to last, all of our products come with a lifetime warranty should anything go wrong. This means that when you buy a bag from Zatchels, you are buying a bag for life and reducing the amount of waste you might create personally by replacing a poorly crafted accessory. Our lifetime warranty covers everything you might expect, like broken buckles and straps. Cosmetic damage is not covered, so make sure that you follow our leather care guide to keep your eco-friendly bag looking as it should.
Because Zatchels bags are crafted from materials that are designed to last, we want to make sure that they never go out of fashion too! Zatchels eco-friendly bags are available in a huge range of designs and styles, from classic and timeless satchels to sleek shoppers that compliment any outfit. This means that when you choose a Zatchels bag you are investing in a piece that will see you through many years to come while embracing the wonderful world of slow fashion.
