Everything we do challenges the status quo by using business to instigate positive social and environmental change. Making beautiful bags just happens to be how we do it!

Founded back in 2015, two best friends set out with a mission to give talented craftsman a fighting chance to support themselves. It was Danny's travels through India, Nepal and Bali that made him determined to keep the families he'd met out of sweatshops. Kai's childhood in South Africa inspired him to bring social equity to his community. Fast forward, and Duffle&Co now proudly supports two workshops, over 20 craftsman and creates beneficial environmental change.

By choosing Duffle&Co, you're showing the world that you wear your values. You're casting a vote for craftsmanship over mass production, climate positive design and a future that envisions a cleaner planet.

With your help we support talented craftsman in Bali and South Africa, empower local communities, plant trees to restore biodiversity and wildlife populations, and offset our emissions by 120%.

We're using fashion as a force for good. So can you!

Environmental impact

We are committed to making our products as beneficial for the planet as possible. This means we're always on the lookout for the best natural materials, and are constantly improving our production processes, so that each piece we make has a positive impact. As part of this process, in 2018 we partnered with Eden Reforestation Projects Indonesia. This is just the start! 

Climate Positive - reversing our carbon emissions

What does Climate Positive mean? We believe that everything we produce should have a positive impact, because our future is too valuable to gamble with. To us, this meant we had to not only reduce, but remove any carbon emissions we created. Learn more about this journey and how we're certified Climate Positive here.


Eden Reforestation Projects Indonesia - planting trees to restore biodiversity
Made up of over 17,000 islands, Indonesia is one of the most biodiverse regions on the planet. Among these islands, there are 135 threatened mammal species, including the endangered Sumatran Tiger, Orangutans, the Javan Rhinoceros and Sumatran Elephants. These islands also make up 25% of global fish populations.
 

To help protect the home of our Balinese craftsmen, we work with Eden Reforestation Projects Indonesia to restore, replant and protect these vital ecosystems. Prone to environmental disasters, mangrove restoration on these islands is essential to reduce the effects of flooding, tsunami's and soil erosion. This is why for each item you buy, we'll plant 5 mangrove trees.
