The new Tumi Recycled Capsule collection just launched is made with recycled materials, designed to be strong and premium quality.
The luxury travel brand, now a subsidiary of luggage giant Samsonite, has previously explored several environmentally friendly materials but failed to find one that met the brand’s quality and testing standards. But in the new Recycled Capsule collection, Tumi uses 70 per cent recycled content without compromising on quality or performance.
“This is the first time that recycled materials have met Tumi’s rigorous standards, marking a breakthrough in our continued material exploration process while demonstrating the brand’s commitment to push beyond industry limits to deliver quality, innovation and sustainability,” said Victor Sanz, creative director at Tumi.
“Sustainability is a concept that has always been woven into everything we do at Tumi, and we’re now taking the next step in pushing that agenda forward.”
The collection of recycled backpacks, day bags and pouches reinterprets styles from the women’s Voyageur collection and men’s Alpha Bravo collection with post-industrial and post-consumer waste materials that would otherwise end up in landfills. Exteriors are made with recycled nylon, while interior and exterior details are constructed from recycled plastic bottles.
The Tumi Recycled Capsule collection is on sale now at selected Tumi stores in Hong Kong and Macau, with prices ranging from HK$690 to $4090 (US$88 to $520).
