Here are the care instructions and special information concerning the transparency and sustainability of your Citizen bag.
The Citizen bag has the same plaiting on both sides as introduced in the Curious bag. Similarly, the material is leftover fabric from the professional diving suit production, where durable suits are created for extreme conditions – naturally with a guaranteed splashproof. This material gives the bag a sharp shape and contemporary luxe feel. The stiff logo strap details complete the strong look that takes your urban outfit to the next level. This bag is the perfect size for carrying more than just your small valuables.

We keep it simple: by purchasing this bag you give a second life to the material otherwise ending up in landfill or burning trash.
We have developed the sustainability of the bag starting from the tiniest details to be as sustainable as possible. 100 % of the fabrics (strap, zipper tape, label and material of the bag itself) are sustainable. We use quality materials to create A long life cycle for our product.
Majority of the components of our bag come either from Finland or other places in Europe. The decision supports our goal to create as little carbon dioxide as possible. We use Finnish subcontractors in procurement of the components and in the production to support local and small businesses. Despite using local subcontractors, we have researched where the components originate. To make sure we collaborate with partners who share our values we visit their factories prior to forming a partnership. We compare their performance to our social and environmental standards alongside their technical capability before taking the decision to proceed.To ease the recycling process the pieces of the product can be separated.We evaluate our sustainability practices on an on-going basis. All sustainability information is researched and calculated with environmental impacts in mind.
In the future we will continue to develop more sustainable business practices.
