INTRO TO PROJECTKIN
PROJECTKIN is a Nordic brand founded in Copenhagen, Denmark in 2017 with an ambition to change the game in the luggage industry by setting a higher standard for sustainability, quality and design.
We believe that by creating the better alternative we can continue to push the bar in terms of sustainability and by creating beautiful products that are made to last and loved by the people who use them, we change how people think about their travel products.
Our suitcase passes all the same quality tests of polluting plastic suitcases with flying colours – but does so using sustainable, natural materials. In fact, our unique shell benefits from the natural attributes of its material – where plastic cracks and breaks, the shell is more flexible and will not crack as plastic does.
We know how important durability is in luggage – so we use only the best of the best components. Our wheels are from the highest quality Japanese manufacturer. Our zippers are from renowned manufacturers known for their durability.
Sustainability is – unlike any other luggage brand – at the forefront of all our design choices. We shy away from plastics where possible (only our wheels need to be plastic to retain world-class durability). We use plastic-free packaging. We use hemp and flax as these are the most sustainable raw materials (others use polyester, cotton with more than 5 times the environmental footprint).
The only truly sustainable choice is to make products that last – and to make them using the most sustainable material possible. We truly believe we have made the best product with the highest quality available today.
Travelling will always present a paradox to those who want to care for the planet. We are all explorers who want to see the world, but travelling is a major source of carbon emissions. In this reality, we must make our footprint minimal.
PROJECTKIN is a movement in response to this paradox. We want to create better alternatives for the mindful traveler. We do this by using materials that replace plastics, by making products made to last and by creating design that becomes even more beautiful with use.
Our mantra is ‘TRAVEL MINDFULLY’. While we cannot travel without a footprint, we can all do our part to protect the planet. That means using the better alternative where we can – whether it is transport, luggage or food, we believe in a world where travel is still a source of happiness for us all while done in a environmentally conscious way. Our beliefs are backed by action. We spent 3 years experimenting and perfecting the use natural materials for luggage – and we have created the first product in the world that avoids use of pollutive plastics for hard-case luggage. We hope to inspire the luggage industry to follow our lead.
We are passionate about creating high quality products in collaboration with world-class designers who are passionate about providing a better alternative to consumers in terms of sustainability. We are bold in our use of new materials and want to embrace the use of the natural expression of materials such as flax, hemp and leather. Our products are designed to become even more beautiful as they are used, in opposition to the ‘buy new’ culture of the luggage industry today.
