Duffle & Co challenge the status quo by using their business model to instigate positive social and environmental change; making beautiful bags just happens to be how they do it.

Through their support of talented craftsman, their empowerment of local communities, and their commitment to planting trees to restore biodiversity, Duffle & Co put the planet and people over profits. In the last year, Duffle & Co offset their emissions by 120%, and this is just the start of their journey.

Founded in 2015, two best friends set out with a mission to give talented craftsman a fighting chance to support themselves. Danny's travels through India, Nepal and Bali 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 support two workshops and over 20 craftsmen, contributing to positive social and 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.

We're using fashion as a force for good - and you can too!

+ New Zealand designed
Duffle & Co is designed in Wellington, New Zealand and ethically made by small communities of talented craftsmen and women in Bali, Indonesia. 

+ Sustainable and zero waste
Duffle & Co embrace sustainable and zero-waste design principles by utilising by-product leather that would otherwise end up in landfill, and by repurposing offcuts for zipper pulls and smaller leather items. Each Duffle & Co bag is also made to order, minimising collection waste, with a four to six-week slow fashion turnaround because good things take time. Duffle & Co collections include staple pieces that can be worn season after season too. Duffle & Co are an accredited Climate Positive brand through EKOS and they use Pinatex for their expanding vegan range. Duffle & Co plant five mangrove trees for each bag purchased to restore vital and much-needed biodiversity to Indonesia, helping to replenish fish stocks, provide jobs and reduce carbon.

+ Ethical
Duffle & Co have a personal relationship with their makers and they visit their manufacturing workshop annually. All Duffle & Co bags are made in a family-owned and run workshop in Bali, and all members of the team are employed on a permanent basis to maintain a high level of production and quality standards. Duffle & Co craftsmen and women are paid two and half times more than the average Indonesian living wage.

+ Eco-friendly fabrics
Duffle & Co's limited vegan range is made with Pinatex, a zero-waste and sustainable material made from regenerated pineapple skin. 

+ Certified
Duffle & Co are Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified, B-Corp certified and EKOS Climate Positive certified.

+ Some vegan options
Duffle & Co's limited vegan range is made with Pinatex, a zero-waste and sustainable material made from regenerated pineapple skin. 

+ Social enterprise
Duffle & Co was founded on a mission to give craftsmen and women living in disadvantaged communities a fighting chance to support themselves; making beautiful bags just happens to be how they do it. 

+ Recycled and circular
Duffle & Co utilise Pinatex or 'pineapple leather'. Pinatex is a circular fabric made from waste pineapple leaves from the food industry which would have otherwise been landfilled or burned. Duffle & Co also use by-products leather, which is arguably a recycled material of the food industry which would also be landfilled if not repurposed. Duffle & Co use certain offcuts of leather that other brands don’t want to use; it makes pattern cutting a little tricky but worth it to reduce waste. 

+ Transparent
Duffle & Co know the source of all materials used, are aware of the origins of their entire production cycle, and are happy to offer any information if asked.
