The World’s First Premium Cork Duffle Suitcase: 17 Features

Our Story

At Mi Terro,we believe that fashion doesn’t have to be fast, disposable, or temporary. We believe it should begin and end with a classic collection of well-designed essentials. And we’re starting that collection with a premium duffle suitcase – Mi Terro CDS.

Since we believe a product’s lifespan should be as timeless as its design - simplicity and sustainability were integral parts of our design process.

Mi Terro's Premium Cork Duffle Suitcase has 17 convenient features for your benefit combined into one eco-friendly and fashionable bag. 

Our cork comes from the bark of cork oaks, so when we harvest them we save nature by not cutting down the trees. It is also endowed by mother nature with more durability than leather. Due to its honeycomb cell structure, you can save on maintenance costs compared to a leather bag. 

Cork is less dense than leather, meaning you get a lighter bag for the same size. You can even bring it as a carry-on in the airplane. The exterior is stainless, so you don't have to send it to an expensive repair place.  

Its waterproof coating allows it to withstand water, whereas it ruins regular leather bags.

Did you know that cork insulation also protects NASA's space rocket from fire and ice, ranging from -423°F to more than 200°F?  

We collect the plastic from the ocean and recycle them into usable material.  This save our oceans from pollution.

First, we wash and sort them. Then we grind them into a powder and heat it up to pellets we can roll into a yarn. That yarn them ends up in your CDS as part of the zipper and inner lining. For each bag, we remove 2 pounds of plastic from our oceans and transform them into fashion pieces.

"This bag is sophisticated. It has the look and touch of leather but is made of sustainable materials. Perfect traveling bag for men or women. Amazing!

Timeline 

Shipping Solution

Once the campaign has ended, you will be emailed a survey to select your color of choice along with the options to include any add ons. We plan on getting you your rewards by the end of May 2019. Shipping is included for the U.S. and Canada. All duties for shipments to the U.S. are covered by us. Some countries may face additional local duties by the customs agent in that country - this will not be covered and may come at an additional cost to you.

On top of eliminating virgin plastic from our supply chain: we are eliminating single use plastics from our packaging: We have developed and tested a revolutionary shipping packaging solution; using no single use plastic.

Funding

Minimum Order Quantity: In-order to produce the Mi Terro Cork Duffle Suitcase with a quality manufacturer who has experience with major brands, we need to give them a production order large enough so that they are willing to produce the bag and at a cost which will make it affordable for most consumers.

Tooling: Some of the components including custom hardware require an investment in tooling for volume production.

Save Planet Program

If you don't want the product anymore, please don't throw it again. Send it back to us so we can recycle and reuse it! Simple send us an email to hello@miterro.com and title "Save Planet Program." We will send you a pre-paid mailing label and please send the entire product all in one. 

Once we receive the product, you will be rewarded with 10% OFF discount on your next purchase. You can also customize a new product from the same material that you sent back to us. We are committed to Make Earth Green Again by recycle, reuse, and reduce fashion waste. 

Return Policy

We offer a 30 day no risk return policy. Returns are accepted within 30 days of receiving the product as long as it is in its original condition (meaning no damage in any form). But don't worry, we know you are going to love it!

Risks and challenges

In fashion and its complex supply chain, delays due to natural occurrences or human error may sometimes be inevitable. We will adhere to our timeline shipping them in May of 2019.

Some international backers will be subject to import duty and taxes; these backers will be responsible for for covering all of their local duties and taxes. Import duties and taxes are not covered by this Kickstarter campaign.

The real product feature higher quality materials than the final prototype shown in the pictures.
