These cork backpacks are being touted as the world's most eco-friendly and have a unique structured style.

After recognizing the need for the fashion industry to divert the many harmful impacts it has on the environment, Hubert Mou created these backpacks. Cork is made from shaving the outer layer of an oak tree which helps it grow stronger and the bark is boiled and dried -- with the entire process producing zero waste and no pollution. The cork backpacks are handmade, durable, water-resistant and lightweight on top of having a fashion-forward style.

These eco-friendly backpacks are ideal for the environmentally conscious consumer who understands the pitfalls of fast-fashion and chooses to abstain from purchasing clothes made in large quantities with harmful production processes.
