Sustainably Sourced


An estimated 767 million people live below the international poverty line of $1.90 a day. Each Parker Clay leather good is crafted at a growing production factory in Ethiopia which follows fair trade principles and pays a premium wage of 87% over the average. In a few short years they have gone from employing one artisan to over 50 full time artisans, sourcing premium supplies directly from rural farmers and traditional tanneries.

Your purchase today empowers communities in Ethiopia to thrive while giving you a premium product that supports your style and values.

Take it with you to work or carry it on your next flight. The Mari is spacious enough to carry you throughout your day and versatile enough to change with your life. Ethically made from vegetable-tanned Ethiopian leather and built to last you a lifetime. This will be the last backpack you'll ever need to buy.
