Why aren't the Fitz & Huxley shoulder straps padded? Don't they cut in?
We combine design and everyday functionality with our backpacks. We designed the shoulder straps so that they are as inconspicuous as possible and fit so well into your outfit. At the same time, the woven material is soft and thick so that the shoulder straps do not cut in even when the backpack is fully loaded. Thousands of satisfied Fitz & Huxley rucksack fans have tested this.
Why do you produce in India and not in Germany? Aren't workers exploited there?
It is true that poor working conditions, exploitation and child labor still exist in poor India. But the prejudice does not adequately describe reality. India is in a process of change, of which we and our production partners understand each other. In order to ensure our high requirements, our production is certified with the renowned SEDEX and SA8000 standards. These ensure, among other things, fair wages and the possibility of unionization as well as good occupational health and safety measures. About 140 people and their families can make a good living from the production for Fitz & Huxley and we can offer our customers very high quality products at an affordable price, unlike if we were producing in Germany. And: For us, an Indian family that makes a living from backpack production is just as important as a German one. You can find more FAQ here.
