Elie and Natacha wanted to design a bag that combines fashion & nature, ethics & aesthetics. From this bobobark was born.
bobobark is a handmade designer piece. A versatile backpack that carries the Parisian chic heritage all the while being comfortable and practical. Most importantly bobobark is completely sustainable!
bobobark fits any lifestyle, and any woman on any occasion. Designed with a womans silhouette in mind and to highlight any outfit. On the go or at the office, bobobark will be there to elevate your style.
A clean geometric shape that was designed to match the ergonomic shape of a womans body and to flatter the silhouette.
Our bag is handmade from a premium cork skin which is collected and polished in Portugal, until the texture is as soft and supple as leather.
Cork is as resistant and durable as leather but 3 times lighter. It is completely organic & ethical. Collecting and harvesting the bark from the cork tree takes place every 7 to 9 year, and this way does not harm the trees. In fact, this method helps the trees grow and release more oxygen.
Our craftsmen pay close attention to every little detail and every piece of the bag is attached individually to guarantee the highest quality. Our bags are made to last.
Organization is made simple & easy with bobobark.
A clamshell clasp opens 180 degrees for a wide and clear view into the bag. A large zippered pocket at the center acts as a divider of the main compartment.
We added a 13” laptop padded compartment which is accessible both from inside and outside of the bag. An easy access phone pocket for easy reach, and a port built into the pocket for a cable to keep you charged on the go. A few more well thought out zips and pockets allow you to organize your treasures the way you like.
The Organic Cork material we use is 3 times lighter than leather which allows for added comfort. It is resistant and strong, and is completely waterproof. The more it ages the softer and smoother it becomes.
Laflore is a family story, between a father and his daughter. Elie (the father) is the, founder of one of the leading fashion houses in Paris. Elie has worked in fashion for over 30 years. Natacha (the daughter) is a young designer born and raised in a Paris surrounded by craft and the finest handbag workshops.
They share a passion for design and fashion, as well as a mutual concern for our environment’s future. Together they created the brand Laflore, which stands for luxury and sustainability, so women never again have to choose between style and ethics.

Risks and challenges
This may be LaFlore’s first Kickstarter campaign, but we the founders have more than 30 years of experience in designing, testing, manufacturing and shipping our products globally. We understand the risks and challenges of the production process which is why we perform rigorous testing of all products before launching them to market. Unexpected issues may arise and if they do we always deal with them with our customers’ satisfaction at the top of our priorities list.
In short, we know what we’re doing and you should be very confident that we will deliver what we say we will, when we say we will. We promise that should any unexpected issues arise, we will handle them with clear communication, transparency and care.
We are very proud of our supply chain and are confident that we can create the product with the highest quality and on time. We promise to put our energies and focus to ensuring our customers satisfaction, product quality, and meeting deadlines.
One challenge we have considered is blasting past our funding goal and coping with a large direct-to-customer delivery. However, we have learned a great deal from our e-commerce business and have lined-up several options for production & logistics partners who have vast crowdfunding experience.
