For February London Fashion week, Faldan created a concept space featuring our packaging boxes (made from recycled coffee cups) as a flock of birds soaring across the ceiling and our hero Faldan bag transforming through its different phases of being.
Launched in 2019, Faldan believes in a better world through smart design. The Faldan bag is the world’s first ethical luxury, fully-foldable bag. Smart, geometric markings in the fabric create a unique pattern and, crucially, allow the bag to fold down seamlessly into an iPhone-sized purse.
Faldan launched a new recycled nylon version of its pioneering design during February’s London Fashion Week. The brand exhibited at the British Fashion Council’s Positive Fashion Exhibition, a platform designed to celebrate industry best practice and encourage future business decisions to create positive change.
The brand has a transparent production promise to only use leather that is a by-product of the meat industry, thus having a smaller environmental footprint than producing new fabrics. All Faldan leather is sourced from gold-rated tanneries that are leading the way in reducing the environmental impact of leather production.The new recycled nylon bag is vegan-friendly and was crafted with the same attention to detail, material quality and production values as the leather version.
Faldan also exists to champion women. Founded by former UN Climate Negotiator Laura Hanning, the bag was designed not only as a symbol of sustainability but also to act as a style ‘partner in crime’ for life’s ultimate multi-taskers.
