Hi, we are BEEN. We turn waste which normally ends up in landfill into gorgeous accessories. We design and manufacture everything locally, in a small workshop in East London.
This is what gets us really excited! Every material we've used to create our line of bags has been something else in a previous life. This means reducing waste and your carbon footprint, as well as the need for virgin materials and natural resources.
The leather goods industry is a very traditional one. So we searched long and hard for a team of professional makers who can deliver the best quality, have great working conditions and share our obsession with sustainable materials. We're extremely lucky to have found our makers in East London who are now becoming really close friends (yes, even our children have met each other! 8-)
STRETCH GOAL COLOURS
Only available if we hit the stretch goals of £17k and £18k.
Until now we've been a completely self-funded startup saving on coffees to be able to order a batch of materials and make the next round of prototypes. So by pre-ordering from us now, you are really helping us to kickstart a small independent brand tackling waste.
Your card will not get charged until the very end of the campaign in July and only if we manage to hit our target.
Thank you once again for checking us out, we're keeping our fingers crossed we hit the target and it all becomes a reality.
Risks and challenges
We are confident we will deliver all the orders on time and will keep every backer posted about our progress. But in the unlikely case of any delays, we promise to be honest and clear about everything.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
