Carry Courage strives to be a brand committed to transparency in all areas. We care about making our Earth a better place for the next generation and celebrate every material we can source that sustains this purpose.
Cork fabric is harvested from the cork oak tree, and ours comes from sustainable forests with strict harvesting regulations to protect this resource and regulate its quality.
The Cork Oak is the only tree that benefits from the removal of its bark, which regenerates every 8-10 years. Once harvested, the tree absorbs about 5 times the CO2, making harvesting cork bark important in reducing greenhouse gasses.
Our cork fabrics are PETA-approved vegan, sourced from Portugal and we love how durable and soft they are.
Linen is a natural plant based fiber that will biodegrade after it is discarded making it an eco-friendly option. Linen is made using the entire flax plant and doesn’t require the use of pesticides. Our natural linen lining fabrics are sourced from a family-owned United States supplier that has been in business for nearly 100 years.
Our metal bag hardware is also sourced from the United States, from a woman owned company that is committed to providing high quality hardware for bag makers.
