OUR COMMITMENT TO CONSUME LESS WATER WITH THIS PRODUCT
We have improved this product with an eco-design approach.
Textile dyeing requires a lot of water but also produces waste water from the dye baths. We dye every other thread to reduce water consumption and water pollution.
To reduce our impact on the environment, we choose the method of bulk dyeing, by integrating the colour pigments from the manufacture of the yarn (references: black 8649351, khaki 8649348).

Tested for optimum durability and strength
To guarantee the durability of the bag, laboratory tests are conducted on the components and assemblies to replicate the ageing of the backpack.
For example, for a fabric, we test the resistance to abrasion and tearing, the colour fastness when exposed to UV light and washing, and the waterproofing.
We use these tests to guarantee the bags for a period of 10 years from the date of purchase on the receipt.

How is volume measured?
The volume of each backpack is measured using a standard method: we fill the main compartment, as well as each pocket, with little balls. Then we empty these balls into a graduated container, which gives the equivalent volume in litres.
How to fill your backpack?
Place the heavy items, e.g. laptop, picnic, etc., in the bottom and in the spaces provided. Pack your clothes around these items. Put the small belongings that you will use during the day (sun cream, map, sunglasses, etc.) in the pockets. Put the water bottle(s) in the outer pockets on the sides that are made for this purpose.
