MARINA RAPHAEL X DOINA

Channelling a shared vision of a fashion industry which has a positive environmental impact, designer Marina Raphael with creative director and sustainability consultant Doina Ciobanu have together created three, exquisitely handcrafted bags. Each bag is crafted around a vegan leather and cotton structure and is finished with an intricately sculpted chain and hardware. While the cotton is a certified blend of recycled and organic fibres and the hardware is made in compliance with the appropriate environmental and regulatory standards, it is the vegan leather which truly sets each bag apart. A stark departure from most vegan leathers, which are typically plastic-based, each Marina Raphael x Doina bag brings to the forefront a unique vegan leather derived from residuals of the industrial processing of apples.

Complementing the core materials’ environmental credentials, each bag is packaged and protected by sustainably sourced and produced dust-bags and boxes. Doina and Marina both worked to ensure that each piece was also constructed using eco-friendly assembly techniques so that each bag’s creation lives up to the collection’s sustainable aims. Following Marina’s ethos of traditional craftsmanship, they employed Italian artisans to handcraft each of their creations, ensuring not only the highest quality standards, but also a minimised environmental footprint.
