At SALZEN our mission is to shape a sustainable and responsible future. As a bluesign® system partner and a member of the Fair Wear Foundation (FWF) we strive for a transparent and eco-friendly production and we are highly committed to improve working conditions in the textile industry. SALZEN backpacks are PFC-free yet water-repellent and partly made of PET-recycled bottles.
german sustainability award
A prestigious award: As part of the FOND OF GmbH SALZEN has been presented with the award for “Most Sustainable SME”. The award honors companies, communities and research institutes that have made outstanding contributions to the field of sustainability.
In 2016 FOND OF became a member of the FAIR WEAR FOUNDATION. FWF is an organization whose goal is to improve the working conditions in the sewing textile industry around the world. The foundation´s principles are, among others, payment of living wages, reasonable working hours, occupational safety, and preventing child labor.
We are a bluesign® system partner since day one. The system focuses on resources, people and the environment. With its holistic approach it reduces the impact on people and on the environment, ensures responsible use of resources and guarantees the highest level of consumer safety.
A perfect balance of attractive materials and sustainability is what we strive for at SALZEN. When it comes to the selection of our fabrics and leathers, we look very carefully and source only those materials which convince us completely, both visually, haptically and qualitatively. For our fabric variants we have been using PET-recycled materials from early on and we work ambitiously to improve the sustainability of our products.
With SALZEN we have made it our mission to be a faithful companion and partner in everyday life for all creators out there. We do so by designing minimalistic yet highly functional and sustainably produced backpacks, which not only provide maximum flexibility and organization in everyday life, but allow people to focus on what matters most. On the other hand, we are inspiring them with our limited statement collections, helpful books and a selection of items – smart and helpful in volatile times like these.
