More about Duffle & Co
Duffle&Co is our first accessories label, and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome them to the Slowclothes family. Based in NZ with manufacturing in Bali and now South Africa, they started with the sole purpose of doing good – for people AND the planet.
Duffle&Co began with the primary purpose of supporting artisan families to be able to keep their craft alive and families flourishing. The head craftsmen in their Bali workshop found themselves out of work as trade shifts to China saw companies like Quicksilver and Volcom shift manufacturing. Enter Duffle&Co!
As well as supporting their makers, they are a climate positive business – they more than offset all emissions generated by their business through collaborations with habitat restoration projects in their manufacturing home of Indonesia. For every item purchased, 5 mangrove trees are planted.
Duffle&Co also use materials that are as sustainable as possible. All of the leather they use is by-product leather from the meat industry (rather than from livestock raised specifically for leather). They also work with the incredible new fibre Pinatex, a vegan leather alternative made from cellulose from pineapple leaves, a byproduct that would otherwise become waste from the pineapple industry. Pinatex has a beautiful unique fibrous look, mimicking leather in function and durability. Amazing, ha?!
