Hamilton Perkins Collection announced the release of its eco-fashion accessories for socially conscious travelers on the go. Each bag is made out of 100% recycled plastic bottles and lined with repurposed vinyl from billboards. With every bag sold, Hamilton Perkins Collection and its customers reduce waste levels, cut carbon emissions, conserve water – and create jobs.
“We came to the industry from the customer’s point of view first and we were not satisfied with what the market was producing,” said Hamilton Perkins Collection founder, Hamilton Perkins. Perkins struggled to find a bag that was unique, transparent, and equipped to have an impact. “We had trouble finding a backpack that could meet our basic needs in a practical and socially responsible way, the conception for the solution started there.”
Hamilton Perkins Collection designs and re-engineers classic travel accessories, building them from the ground up to give. Hamilton Perkins Collection invests quality time curating and selecting the right partnerships with suppliers, cut-and-sew factories, and with distribution platforms that have parallel core values and reputation.
Most bags are one-dimensional and don’t give the traveler the option to choose the version most suitable for their current travel experience. The Hamilton Perkins Collection Earth bag is an all-in-one bag that converts into a backpack or duffle bag. Additionally, the Earth bag features a 3-way zippered compartment that allows easy access to laptops, books, and travel documents.
Regarding the essence of the project and body of work, Perkins added, “It is slightly unconventional but we are actually set up to encourage travelers to save closet space and to buy fewer bags overall by combining 2 designs into one.”
