Product Description
Small City shopper and backpack for a modern, mobile lifestyle, two options for carrying, padded back, eco-friendly production

Beautifully practical — practical beauty! Because the Balsa is a beautiful city bag made from natural, eco-friendly materials with two functional options: It can be carried as a shopper or worn as a backpack. Its owner will have a good overview and excellent protection for a tablet, phone, wallet, keys and other necessities for a day on the town — with space left over to bring something home from your outing. An additional easy-access pocket at the front will hold your journal, bus ticket and the like. Every Balsa is unique — because the textile, robust material mix made from hemp fibers with small color inlays and organic cotton gives each bag a special, individualized flair. The VAUDE Green Shape label stands for environmentally friendly, functional products made from sustainable materials.

EcoPaXX is a bio-based plastic. Normally, plastics are made from petroleum. In order to save this finite fossil resource, we have been looking for an alternative made from a renewable raw material. 70% of EcoPaXX is made from castor oil. The hardy castor oil plant, also known as palm of Christ, grows without additional irrigation on barren soil that would be unsuitable for growing food. We use the oil, which is pressed from the plant’s beans, to make robust polyamide fibres for our clothing as well as for making recyclable zip fasteners, buttons and hooks.

Natural hemp fibres are used in this product. The hardy, robust plant is cultivated as industrial hemp. Hemp is naturally highly resistant and grows quickly. It requires little water, as well as no fertiliser or pesticides, making it an environmentally-friendly, renewable raw material. Fibres are obtained from the stalks, with these in turn processed into hard-wearing fabrics. The result is high-quality, long-lasting products, which should give you many years of enjoyment.

VAUDE uses recycled materials (e.g. from PET-bottles) in the manufacture of this product. This saves up to 50% in energy and CO2 emissions as well as fossil raw materials.

Organic Cotton
Our "Organic Cotton" label guarantees the use of certified organic cotton. Chemical fertilizers and pesticides are taboo, as are GM seeds. Worldwide, 25% of all insecticides and 11% of all pesticides are used for conventional cotton, even though cotton only accounts for 2% of global agricultural areas. Organic cotton helps reduce the use of these poisons.

Eco Finish
VAUDE products bearing the Eco Finish been waterproofed in an environmentally-friendly way without fluorocarbons (PFC). PFCs are part of a group of chemical compounds which are used to waterproof the outer layer of many outdoor products. They have come under criticism for being non-biodegradable, bioaccumulative and toxic, and suspected of being harmful to health. VAUDE has made a clear commitment to completely renouncing PFCs.
