Nick from *a day pack* on the ENAT leather scrap Card Wallet

Gotta say, feedback is great –– especially when it's the good kind! Earlier this year we came out with the ENAT Card Wallet, a way of turning our waste into something a lot more useful than garbage. This little holder is made from the scraps of our other bags and brings us one step closer to achieving zero waste. It also marks our first foray into designing something that appeals to everyone.  We sent one to Nick, 1/2 of the loveable a day pack duo, to test drive it for us. We totally dig the fact that Emily, the original face of this blog that focuses on conscious goods and a slow lifestyle, is stepping out from behind the camera. We know more guys are choosing...

The ENAT Ethical Fashion Digest: what we're reading this week

The ENAT Ethical Fashion Digest: What We’re Reading This Week (ed. 1) Every week we try to stay on the pulse of conscious and sustainable fashion, reading up on who is innovating and who is shining a light on challenges and solutions.   We’ve seen a surge in stories that use terms like “slow fashion”, “ethically made” and more that identify brands that care about the people they work with, their effect on the environment, and, just generally, the whole supply chain. Bottom line, there are a ton of badass people working on this stuff.   We suspect that some of you might also be curious to know about all of these things too. So, while we can’t show you...

Hey, Newbie: Meet the Card Wallet

We're so excited to tell you all about the new ENAT Card Wallet. These babies are made from cut-away leather that goes into the making of our line of bags. Usually these bits and pieces are discarded, but Daniel and his team have turned them into something extra useful. We've been using them for months! Pack it full of cards and a little bit of cash and you'll be good to go. It'll fit right into your pocket or your smallest purse.  We're committed to thinking creatively about how to minimize our waste. Can't wait to hear what you think!

The Gold Beaded Wrap Bracelet is BACK

  Our Three String Gold Beaded Wrap Bracelets are back in stock! We sold out of these simple bracelets in record time our first time around so we’ve worked with Haime to get another batch of these ready. This piece is made from entirely recycled materials: used bullet casings taken from military bases in Ethiopia and strung together on string made from recycled tire. We love the bracelet in particular, not just because it looks great, but because it takes a discarded, violent object and turns it into something beautiful. How about that for transformation? Get them in the shop now for $22.
