Terrea is unique. It is a new eco-friendly line that embraces simplicity and natural beauty. This collection reflects Samsonite OutLab’s personal commitment to sustainable development and to respecting the planet by ensuring that the materials and components used are recycled or reclaimed.
The bags in this Terrea collection contain a minimum of 86% of recycled materials with some bags containing as much as 95%, one of the highest available rates.
To begin, all fabrics used in the bags are 100% recycled. Other unique and environmentally-friendly features include: recycled foam padding throughout all back panels, handles, and shoulder straps, recycled buckles and clips, recycled wheel housings, studs, pull handles with injected wood, use of natural coconut fiber in shoulder straps, backpack straps cut directly out of the back panels to use even less material.
This is a technical, beautifully designed, yet functional line, to be used on an outdoor weekend trip, or any adventurous expedition. Great style and design, recycled and reclaimed materials, and better for the environment. Every detail has been looked at with careful attention to ensure that this collection stands out as an example of what can be created working with and for nature, to protect our great outdoors.
Samsonite has always been at the heart of the true adventurer. In 1910, when the company was founded, travel was for the brave and the intrepid â€“ true explorers. The company’s products reflected the harsh realities of travel in those days. That idea of exploration is at the heart of the latest initiative in the outdoor offer of Samsonite OutLab. True to its heritage, Samsonite OutLab presents new lines for Spring/Summer 2009 that bring modern outdoor design, contemporary style and unrivalled functionality to life. Unique and innovative technologies are introduced throughout these new collections, bringing a complete offer of outdoor travel bags made for all those adventurous outdoor exploits.
