Affenzahn is a manufacturer that focuses on creating backpacks using sustainable methods. Their products are made with fabrics that consist of 50% recycled PET bottles, which significantly reduces wastewater, energy consumption, and pollutant emissions compared to traditional production processes. In addition, Affenzahn takes great care to ensure that no toxic chemicals are used in materials and that the manufacturing process conserves resources.
Notably, Affenzahn holds certifications and membership in organizations such as the Fair Wear Foundation, bluesign®, and the Leather Working Group. Their dedication to social responsibility is demonstrated by ensuring fair treatment and wages for workers in their factories.
Affenzahn backpacks have also earned the Green Button certification, a government label that validates the social and ecological sustainability of textiles. The company’s commitment to the environment extends beyond backpacks as they also produce shoes made from ECONYL® yarn, 100% regenerated nylon from waste, and incorporate 100% organic cotton in their shoes’ upper and lining materials.
Additionally, Affenzahn offers vegan options for shoes made from 100% vegan materials. Affenzahn’s products are a testimony to combining functionality with responsibility towards people and the planet.
