Sustainable raw materialWe are extremely strict with the raw material and always look for sustainable suppliers. Our Heritage Leather is a new technology that proves that being fashionable and being ecological at the same time is possible.
That provides a more natural appearance, with more vibrant and uniform colors, and especially more durability.
As we are always concerned with establishing fair remuneration to our artisans, we believe that the use of more sustainable and durable raw materials mean more value to our products and to what our customers get. The introduction of Heritage Leather in the manufacturing of our products respects strict environmental standards, such as the criteria used by the European Union.
We believe sustainability is to produce products that last longer, generating less waste and less need for repurchase. This is why we take our Made to Last philosophy so seriously.

How do we make it?
Our products are handmade in Brazil in our atelier through a fair and ethical production line. From cutting leather to sewing, each piece is made in a unique and exclusive way.
We use Bio-leather, a 100% genuine leather, and our products are finished with vegetable tannins, which guarantee a more natural aspect to the material. The molds for each product are manually cut, which is taken to the sewing one by one.
Our backpacks are hand-sewn with great care by our artisans, who put love and care into the details of the cut that generate your Beatnik.
Each piece is carefully finished and undergoes a rigorous quality test to ensure that the product is suitable for use. And once it's packed, it's ready to make history with you.
