Ethnotek in The Huffington Post...say it ain't so?!

Ethnotek in The Huffington Post...say it ain't so?!

OH MY GOSH!! Not sure if you've seen the news yet, but we were featured in The Huffington Post this week! Must have been a Diwali, Festival of Lights, gift. 

This brings us joy. Co-Founder Jake couldn't have said it better when he said, "It means a lot to our little mission, and to me personally, to receive validation from the Huffington Post on the topic of socially responsible business and sustainable practice." 

Waste not want not

Waste not want not

What's up everyone, head designer Jake here, reporting live for the tribe from hot and sweaty Saigon. Now that I've been close to the sewing needle and knee deep in THREAD fabrics for about a month now, I figured it'd be a great time to reveal some cool bag related details that you might not know about. A lot of you beautiful people have been getting behind our socially responsible mission, and now more than ever, we've been receiving questions about eco-design considerations and if we take any measures to be responsible in the green way as well. The answer is 'absolutely YES'! Or at least we try our best. Some of them are just buried deep within the bag construction. Here's the inside scoop.

We're Curious, What's in Your Backpack?

We're Curious, What's in Your Backpack?

The Ethnotek Crew are a bunch of curious folks.  We can't help ourselves.  When we see people carrying a pack, we want to know what's in there (and most of us are really not shy, so if we run into you, we'll probably ask you).  We are especially curious when we see backpackers.  Being on an extended travel means having to carry your whole life on your back.  And so, that begs the question, what are those can't-live-without-it items that make their way into travelers packs?
