About this project

New Globe Traveller is introducing the world's first range of luxury bags, hand-crafted from ‘upcyled’ leather and tyre inner tubes, that help to protect the planet and also support the education of children. 

We are also the world's first One-for-One, One-to-One business. On the purchase of every product, the primary school education of an underprivileged child in a developing country is supported for a year in the name of the buyer.

The Product Range:

MESSENGER BAG

 

  LADIES TOTE BAG

 

  LAPTOP/ BUSINESS BAG

 


   BACKPACK 20L

    

   WEEKEND HOLDALL

 

When the buyer receives one of our premium bags, they also receive details of the child, along with a website link on which to follow their progress through the year. The buyer also receives a ‘Hero’ card such as the one shown above.

(Note that Kickstarter, rightfully, does not allow any funds raised to be donated to causes. Purchases on this campaign therefore do not automatically support a child's education. However you can connect your purchase during this campaign to a child's education by paying a supplement at the end of the campaign. Please read our FAQs for details)

Why this project is important:

Issues such as global warming and children's lack of access to education have real and dangerous ramifications for the world that the next generations will inherit from us. (For more information on the impact of these issues and how this project can change things, read our FAQs)

What if each of us could be part of the solution by starting a revolution in consumerism, where we not only buy consciously but also change lives one step at a time?

How your support will help make a difference:

Every time you buy a New Globe Traveller product, you have a positive impact on the environment by reducing waste. You also personally help secure the future of an underprivileged child by kick-starting their education. Here is how your support will make a difference.

Protect the planet

New Globe Traveller’s bags are hand-made from upcycled leather and tyre inner tubes. We source unused pieces of leather from tanneries and combine these with pieces of tyre inner tubes, that would otherwise have ended up in a landfill, to make our stylish bags. Using existing material eliminates the need for new resources and also helps reduce waste.

Provide Sustainability

Our products are designed in the UK and manufactured by our partners in India who are an environment focused, fair trade company. They are acknowledged by the United Nations and their manufacturing has been covered by the CNN. The manufacturing unit provides employment to people from underprivileged and marginalised backgrounds and gives them a means for sustenance.

Change a life, one purchase at a time

Most importantly, New Globe Traveller is about connecting modern buyers with tangible social change. Every time you buy a bag, you personally give a child the chance of a brighter future by kick-starting their education. (Read notes about supporting children on purchases made during this campaign in the Important Notes section and our FAQ)

It does not take much to positively impact a child’s life. A small amount from the sale of products featured on this campaign, supports the education of a child for a whole year, including the provision of books, shoes and uniforms.

On the sale of some of our other products (not featured in this campaign), we provide creativity sets to children on the streets. See how little it takes to put a smile on a child's face in this video we shot, where we gave one such creativity set to this lovely girl who lives on the street with her parents and siblings.

When you buy a New Globe Traveller product, you can be part of such beautiful stories and make a real difference. 

Welcome to the League of New Heroes. Be part of a revolution in change.

 

                                              

 

  
 

Important Notes:

Please note that Kickstarter, rightfully, does not allow any funds raised during the campaign to be given towards charitable purposes so when you pre-order one of our bags during this campaign, you will able to enjoy Kickstarter-exclusive discounts but the purchase will not support the education of a child by default.

However, you can connect your purchase to the support of a child after the campaign ends (March 21st 2017). We will send you a survey to collect shipping information at which time you can send in your selfie and make a £30 supplement payment to us directly so we can sponsor a child in your name and send your 'Hero' card.

Risks and challenges

This may be our first Kickstarter product but we are fairly well experienced with supply chain management. We have strong processes in place to ensure that our production teams can meet the demand for products and make deliveries in time. However since we have undertaken to ship our products worldwide (we are headquartered in the UK and our production partners are based in India) there may be unforeseen delays. If this happens, we will be in touch with buyers to update progress.
