Faldan is the world's first ethical luxury fully-foldable bag.
Designed for life's jugglers, Faldan is for all the multi-taskers. Workaholics. Bosses. Thinkers. For mothers. Partners. Runners. Travellers. For those who need a fashionable partner in crime in an otherwise hectic life. A bag that goes big one minute, and perfectly tucks away the next. A bag for those who strive to lead more conscious lives through intelligent fashion choices.
Faldan believes in a better world through smart design. Its mission is to reduce dependency on plastic bags by providing an ethical, functional and beautiful alternative. Faldan's vision is to transform the way people consume: inspiring them to buy less, but buy smart.
All materials used are selected for their sustainability, lightness and durability. Faldan uses ethical, responsibly-sourced leather, recycled nylon made from plastic bottles and old fishing nets and packaging made from recycled coffee cups.
Faldan is launching a new vegan recycled nylon version of the pioneering foldable bag at the Positive Fashion Exhibition during the London Fashion Week.
Faldan was founded by former UN climate Negotiator Laura Hanning. Hanning graduated with a Masters from the University of Cambridge and spent almost a decade working in environmental policy. Realising that there was a gap in the market for a product that actively helped to reduce our wasteful habits, but that was still a desirable luxury product, Hanning took an accessories design and pattern cutting course at the London College of Fashion and spent months folding origami shapes and calculating the best size and volume to make the Faldan bag as useful and purposeful as possible.
