Ethnotek - Ethnology and Technology
Exactly these two words compose the name of the company Ethnotek. This immediately makes the basic idea of the fashion label: On the one hand, Ethnotek focuses on respectful interaction with other cultures and support for the local textile industry in less developed countries. On the other hand, the label has set itself the goal of producing practical backpacks and bags that are durable and will accompany you for a long time on all your adventures.
Unusual patterns & functionality
This is exactly what the products of Ethnotek embody. The fancy backpacks and bags get that certain something through traditionally woven textiles. Eye-catching is guaranteed! You can easily give your new backpack a personal touch thanks to the detachable front. You can decide every day which pattern fitting your outfit and save resources by customizing a backpack instead of buying a new one. All Ethnotek products are also 100% vegan and are made without harmful chemicals.
Ethnotek backpacks & bags are fairly produced in Vietnam
Ethnotek manufactures all products in a factory in Vietnam. The first thing that often comes to mind are unfair working conditions and poor payment. But not here! All seamstresses receive on average 81% more salary than the average worker in Vietnam. In addition, Ethnotek takes regular working hours, paid holidays and insurance for granted. You can be sure that your new Fairtrade backpack has been produced without exploitation.
There is a lot of culture in it!
The eye-catching designs of Ethnotek backpacks and bags don't come from anywhere. All patterns are made by craftsmen from different countries like Indonesia, Ghana or Vietnam. The aim of Ethnotek is to use traditional and handmade textiles to make high quality backpacks. Thus the label supports the preservation of different cultures and also secures important jobs in developing countries. Ethnotek wants to spread the values of different cultures with its products and draw attention to the importance of being open and respecting different cultures.
