The world of fashion has gotten a wake-up call in recent years with a handful of its most prominent leaders bringing many of the less than eco-friendly (if not downright wasteful and unsustainable) issues to the forefront. And, while big-name brands still have a way to go, there are plenty of small, conscious brands that can hold their own when it comes to quality and aesthetics. Case in point: Kmana.
Kmana Travel Bags
A family-run design company with a passion for sustainability, Kmana creates some of the most stunning leather travel bags and accessories you have ever seen. Each crafted by hand in Bali, the growing Kmana line is designed with stylish wanderers, male and female, in mind – those who enjoy looking good while on the go. Driven by the idea that “we are constantly creating the world we live in”, Kmana promises to shake up the world of design and fashion, but in a way that’s gentle enough not to ruffle any feathers.
Sustainably produced in small batches, Kmana has quickly become a leader in its niche, considering the brand’s relatively recent start back in 2017. And, while many eco-conscious and sustainable labels use “doing good” as the sole headline of their marketing campaigns, Kmana’s products speak for themselves – just as beautiful and well-made as any other luxury leather bag on the market.
Seen on men and women around the world, from Hong Kong to Barcelona, the current Kmana product range includes day-to-day crossbody bags to yoga mat bags and carry-all weekenders and travel bags. Each bag is cleverly designed from just one piece of either full-grain cow or sheep leather, so Kmana products will last decades – if not a lifetime.
