SOCIALLY AND ECOLOGICALLY RESPONSIBLE PRODUCTION

It is important to us that our products do not only look beautiful, but that they are also produced in a socially and ecologically responsible manner. We have a long-term, family-like relationship with our partner-company who produces our bags in North-East India. It´s a small, family-owned company, that grew together with us. While having developed a good level of trust with our partner, we visit them on a regular basis to audit the complete supply chain. It is important to us that people who are part of our manufacturing process profit from its economic benefits as we ensure their safety and good working conditions. Besides the economic benefits for our partner-company, it is self-evident to us that the environment should not be harmed during the production. In addition to the strict standards and regulations regarding waste disposal, we take care that the disposal of chemicals needed to tan the leather is done in the appropriate way. We feel the responsibility to respect and protect the natural world without damaging it.

“In my early days I used to hop from one factory to other in search of work. Managing a group of skilled stitchers and looking after their livelihood was a big challenge as in most of the company there was not enough work. Since the day I shifted base and started making bags for Fitz & Huxley I never had to look back. This is the first time in my career that I have been working in the same place for more than a year. The credit goes to Fitz & Huxley for care and focus on our welfare. We also get our dues on time and support from the management.”

“All of us are casual labour mainly into cleaning and packing of Fitz & Huxley bags. We are especially excited to see the huge range of colours of the bag and also it looks so cute.”

“All of us here have made many kinds of bags in the past but being a part of Fitz & Huxley production team gives us more thrills. The brand is young, the owner is young and we are young.”

USE OF NATURAL MATERIALS

Our bags are made from high quality, natural materials. We use real leather and cotton to produce beautiful premium bags that only look better over time. Our quality insurance team checks every single bag before sending them out, to ensure the quality of the products. Products that don’t match our standard aren’t thrown out, but are found a second life. For our vegan customers, we also have a selection of products in the typical Fitz & Huxley design where the leather is replaced by cotton.

ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY SHIPPING

We attach great importance to acting sustainable and our goal is to minimize the ecological impact during production and shipping.

We ship plastic-free and our shipping boxes grow on the meadow! You read that right! We ship our products in a box made from 40% regional grass and 60% recycled paper. The use of rapidly renewable grass for cardboard production minimizes the consumption of fresh fibers, which are obtained from wood. This protects the important resource of wood which is good for forests and the climate. Furthermore, the grass used for this carton is grown on local meadows. This local supply concept achieves a eco-balance with up to 50% less CO2 emissions compared to traditional procurement methods for fresh fibers.

In addition, we ship our products climate-neutral with DHL GoGreen. 

 

ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY SHIPPING

We care about sustainability and our goal is to minimize waste during production and shipping. We cooperate with DHL GoGreen for climate-neutral shipping to make sure that your order does not only reach its destination quickly and securely, but to also contribute towards climate protection. We ship our products in a box made from 40% regional grass and 60% recycled paper. The carton is 100% recyclable and additionally saves energy, water and greenhouse gases in comparison to conventional fresh paper fibre production.

 

BAGS MADE TO LAST LONG

PRODUCTS THAT GET A SECOND CHANCE

It can happen that during production some products end up with little beauty flaws, such as tiny scratches in the leather or small stains on the canvas. Rather than throwing these products out, we choose not to waste the materials and instead find them a second life. Most often we sell these “Class B Products” at local Christmas and Designer markets to customers for a reduced price. However, we always reserve a portion of our Class B Products to donate to people who would be happy with a new backpack, but don´t have the means to buy one themselves.
