What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

ABOUT THE PROJECT

Studies suggest that every year around 8 million tons are dumped into the ocean. The impacts are devastating. Especially to our ocean inhabitants. Over 700 species are threatened by plastic pollution. 90% of seabirds eat plastic, and over 30% of fish have plastic inside their stomachs.
Besides being an environmental catastrophe choking our waterways and marine life, for humans this also means one more way that plastic is ending up in our food.

ABOUT GOT BAG

GOT BAG is a small start-up brand with a big vision - create bags that make your travels better and that create an impact. We want to contribute to the rising movement of young start-ups that are currently trying to change our world for the better with sustainable products made with responsibility for our planet. Our objective is to create bags for conscious travelers around the globe that make their travel life better and more joyful. Our bags are designed to last and be your companion in everyday life!

The founders of this project, Roman and Benny, have been tied to the ocean since their childhoods - Roman has been surfing since ages and Benny went on sailing trips with his father before he could walk. They share a dream of doing what they can to help fight against this assault on our ocean.

After almost 2 years of planning, researching, developing and finding partners to create a sustainable product, we are happy and proud to announce the world's first backpack made of recycled ocean plastic. The key to this project and to the cleaning of our ocean is collaboration. Together with our partner SEAQUAL we work with an increasing network of fishermen who are extracting plastic found in the depths of the ocean. The plastic is collected in their nets and then gets transformed into high quality yarn which we use for the production of the fabrics of our backpack. This way we can stop plastic circulating in our oceans and put it on a new journey around the globe – on your back!

100 % waterproof, durable and chic – your perfect bag for traveling and the everyday life. The 23 Liters volume can be easily expanded becauseof its flexible rolltop and the compression straps. Waterproof fabric and sealed seams keeps your belongings dry. A removable laptop bag secures your hardware.
