LEFRIK Transparency Report 2020

The truth behind our barcode

WE DO

For you to consume consciously, is our responsibility to make the right choices at every step of the way. Even though sustainability has been part of our project since day one, we keep prioritizing our responsibili- ty to protect our planet and also continue our commitment to fight social injustices. Our impact approach extends to organizations and causes that care for people and the planet. We contribute to the environment by reducing the use of virgin polyester and rather extending the life of discarded plastic bottles, while saving energy in the production process. Our production is nearly waste-free and we are constantly working on how to optimize it.

Our products are designed in Spain and ethically manufactured in Asia. We make our products in Asia because they have the best techniques in making polyester out of recycled plastic PET bottles.

We understand our impact and measure our environmental footprint in order to change it and reduce it as much as we can. That’s why we decided to become proud members of 1% for the Planet. By working with them we trust we can balance out some of our emissions, while we keep our focus on minimizing our impacts at the source. We have a long-lasting relationship with our suppliers, and during all these years we have built a strong personal relationship with them. We visit them often and each factory is given a compliance audit to evaluate factors like fare wages, reasonable hours and environment. As firmly advocates of animal rights, our products have been approved as vegan by animal welfare organization PETA, being our Maverick foldable trolley awarded as best vegan luggage in 2019. Proving that our backpacks can be functional, modern and cruelty-free at the same time.

WE WANT

Lefrik passion for timeless pieces and sustainability isn’t part of a clichéd marketing plan but sits instead at the very heart of our design ethos. We believe in creating something practical but still being true to our principles.

We want you to wear our bags and backpacks for years, even decades, to come. That’s why we source lightweight resistant fabrics, while paying attention on every detail when designing.

Challenging ourselves is at the core of everything we do. We strive to find new materials, styles and concepts to ensure we offer the best products. The result are innovative, accessible and durable eco-friendly products.

We are on a mission of mindful consumption. This means we need to keep working to improve both brands and industry perspective on how to produce bags and backpacks that can be carried and loved for longer.
