Having already achieved the reputation of upholding thoughtfully sustainable from a longevity design ethos since its origin, TUMI challenges itself to be more innovative throughout the entire product life cycle with the TUMI Recycled capsule made with recycled materials.
Over the years, TUMI has explored several environmentally friendly materials, all in the name of the brand’s steadfast commitment to developing products that last, including purposefully engineering reparability into the product design, so they can be carried even longer. After putting recycled nylon to the test, TUMI’s new Recycled Capsule has found a balance of recycled and virgin materials, thus bringing a bag made from 70% recycled content to market that will support and endure TUMI customers’ journeys.
This is the first time that recycled materials have met TUMI’s rigorous standards – a first step in the brand’s continued material exploration process. TUMI remains committed to pushing beyond the industry’s limits and offering quality, innovation and sustainability to customers.
The TUMI Recycled capsule includes beloved styles from the brand’s Alpha Bravo collection for men, each piece made from post-industrial and post-consumer waste material that would otherwise go into a landfill.
From the Alpha Bravo Collection comes three styles, the London Roll Top Backpack and the Nellis Backpack – each style thoughtfully designed with the perfect combination of practicality and style, featuring dedicated laptop space, water-resistant water bottle pocket, quick-access phone pocket, numerous organiser pockets and more.
The London Roll Top Backpack is constructed with textiles engineered from 26 post-consumer recycled plastic bottles, whereby each piece purchased will divert 4.7 ounces of post-industrial nylon waste from going into a landfill, and the Nellis Backpack from 30 post-consumer recycled plastic bottles, with each piece purchased diverting three ounces of post-industrial nylon waste.
Whereas, the Basel Triangle Pouches and Kelley Sling are great for holding all daily essentials, whether you’re traveling around the world or across town. Each style is constructed from a combination of recycled textiles: the exteriors are made with recycled nylon, while the interiors and exterior details are constructed from recycled plastic bottles.
The Basel Triangle Pouches feature textiles engineered from two to three post-consumer recycled plastic bottles, diverting up to .3 ounces of post-industrial nylon waste from going into a landfill, while the Kelley Sling is constructed with textiles engineered from 12 post-consumer recycled plastic bottles, diverting 1.3 ounces of post-industrial nylon waste.
The TUMI Recycled Capsule is now available at TUMI retail stores worldwide, and online.
