Its strap allows it to be carried in three different ways: as a classic tote bag, as a practical messenger or slung across your back, for example when you are out and about on your bike. DIYO has a large capacity and is therefore a perfect everyday companion for work, study or leisure.

DIYO is Fairtrade Cotton and GOTS certified and made exclusively from sustainable materials. This includes the organically produced cotton canvas as well as the nickel and chrome free adjusters & zippers. DIYO is also free of materials of animal origin and therefore vegan. The dense canvas fabric protects against light rain and drys quickly. Due to different impacts during use your DIYO will get an individual note over time.

Slingbag has additional large inner pocket with side access and zipper, extra wide shoulder straps – for great comfort, practical key holder clip inside and accessory bag for small items such as keys, mobile phone and cosmetics in the inside area.

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.

The three basic pillars of the Melawear brand is sustainability, social responsibility and ecological approach, bridging them together in their manufacturing process. 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. In 2006, Melawear also pledged to use energy from renewable sources in its manufacturing processes, as well as high quality certificated dyes and fabric, which can be then recycled and reused.
