We‘ve developed some new #workmanship details for our new Office Collection, specifically tailored to the #vegetabletannedleather and highdensity #organiccottonfabric .  Organic means: no pesticides or other harmful chemicals - grown by global organic textile standards (GOTS). Currently less than 1% of cotton farming worldwide is done by these standards, unfortunately. #qwstion #qwstionbags #qwstionisouranswer

Graphite Leather Edition

As the boundaries between work and life blur more and more, we stay true to our goal of combining functionality with sustainability. The new Office Pack reflects the downsizing of devices in a sleek, secure and versatile design, made from organic cotton and veg-tan leather. @graciellahuber captured by @ursbiglerphotography #qwstionisouranswer #qwstionbags #qwstion

Making Bananatex® Part 6: There and Back Again 
By the end of the production cycle we have the finished Bananatex® Collection in hand back in Zurich. After a trip around the world, meeting the people who all contribute to creating this product that we dreamed up three years ago, we’re more than humbled. The Bananatex® Collection is a culmination of everything we set out to do with QWSTION, and we’re happy to have you along for the journey.
