Amar is a minimalist backpack in a contemporary design with roll-top function. A patch outer pocket and inner compartments for keys and mobile phone make Amar a versatile everyday companion. The practical 15-inch laptop compartment is protected by a comfortable back padding. Thanks to the modern roll-top system, Amar can be extended from a volume of 15 liters by another 5 liters. The roll-top compartment can be closed with a high-quality YKK zipper.

The backpack with adjustable shoulder straps is made of 100% finest organic Fairtrade Cotton. The cotton canvas makes Amar pleasantly light and equally stable. Amar is free from materials of animal origin and therefore vegan.

The canvas fabric is water resistant and drying fast. Due to different impacts during use, Amar will get an individual note over time.

Melawear is a German brand that creates a bridge between honest farmers of cotton, from the seed through ethical fairtrade manufacturing process in India to the conscious customer. Its name is derived from the word “Mela”, meaning festival in the Hindi language. Just like festival is a place for connecting people and communities of various descent, Melawear also strives for connecting its customers with apparel manufacturers.

Melawear focuses on basic clothing pieces that create the foundation of everyone’s wardrobe. Minimalistic backpacks, modern footwear and timeless fashionable pieces for women, men and children alike are created with respect towards people and nature itself.

Under the Cradle to Cradle innovative concept, Melawear perpetually uses manufacturing materials without producing unnecessary waste. Melawear is first among international brands that complies with difficult criteria set by Fairtrade Cotton Standard and GOTS. Melawear became a part of a social project Germany Fairtrade Textile that supports fair wage distribution to Indian seamstresses.
