We like to see more progressive products aligning environmental sustainability with facilitating everyday life.
With the recent upswing for technical innovation in fashion we are keeping our eyes peeled for applied tech that is relevant and useful and not just for show. One of the acts fitting the bill is LA-based Project Solaire, a brand incorporating renewable power into their unisex backpacks. With removable solar panels and a portable charger, the bags enable consumers to charge all their USB powered devices on the go. The Herschel-style designs are targeted at an ”urban trailblazer” curious about new technology but with core values of style and functionality. We can see the backpack fitting into this consumer’s life and hope to see more progressive products addressing and aligning environmental sustainability with facilitating everyday life. More here and here.
