From a versatility and functionality perspective, the backpack is probably the most essential carry in our opinion here at Coolector HQ and that’s why we spend so long in search of the best purveyors of this type of accessory. Well, we’ve found another fine proponent in the shape of UK brand, Cora + Spink, who specialised in making the finest waxed backpacks many of which are vegan approved for those with an environmental and ethical conscience.
Cora + Spink are the brainchild of Tim Johnson who, back in 2014, was looking at ways to make not only a really good bag – but a range of products that would be good and do good. It was on this simple premise that the brand was born and they’ve gone from strength to strength over the last five years built upon the excellent quality of their wares. They create a great array of backpacks and carries and some which are 100% vegan and they work alongside a whole host of sustainable suppliers in order to create their stylish and versatile accessories that we’re loving here at Coolector HQ.
