Padded Bag in Recycled Polyester
The illustration comes from the wise know-how of a local illustrator, starting from this collection theme: “a glimpse into the world”, where the attention focuses on the animals’ eyes, able to capture the climate change before human beings, too often victim of it.
The Peacy Bag imitates a peacock eye, the Lizzy Bag resembles a lizard, the Froggy one a frog and the Lemy one a lemur.
This padded bag is sewn in a local artisan workshop in Veneto, our region, sewn one by one because Zummy takes enormous care over its work. The inside and outside fabrics and padding are made of post consumer recycled polyester certified fiber. The yarn for stitching is in post consumer certified polyester. The inside and the outside fabrics have a water repellent treatment PFC FREE certified ZDHC for the elimination of harmful substances from the process and the fabric itself. The base that supports the bag – not visible but vitally important – is a pad whose composition is 96% polyester recycled from post-consumer bottles. The supplier of the inside and outside fabrics but also the supplier of the bottom pad adopt the Chemical Management 4Sustainability protocol for the elimination of substances harmful to humans and the environment. Inks too are produced according to ZDHC for the elimination of harmful substances from their production and the printing process itself is certified by the most important certification in the sustainable fashion industry. The zamak button and rings are produced by a company which has joined Greenpeace’s Detox Campaign and committed to eliminating from their production processes chemical substances harmful to human health and the environment.

The dust bag containing the product is made of certified organic cotton, printed with certified inks, while the tag accompanying it is recycled paper. To better withstand impact during shipment, the shipment box is made partly of recycled fibres and partly of virgin fibres from responsibly managed forests. The adhesive tape for closing the box is made of paper from sustainably managed forests. We carefully designed the shipment packaging to make it easily and wholly recyclable as paper, with the sole exception of the dust bag, which is an accessory to be kept and reused.
