New Life Project x Outerknown

By Outerknown Journey


Since the inception of Outerknown, our goal has always been to make extremely versatile clothing of great quality, integrity, form, and function. And over the last five years, our friends have been telling us they need bags that can deliver on these same standards while standing up to the wear and tear of the road. So we’ve partnered up with our good friends in Japan who are masters of design and development in the bag space on an entirely new vision we’re calling New Life Project. 

Our 4 inaugural styles fuse clean aesthetics with durable, recycled materials. This first drop is about 70% recycled, and we won't stop evolving until we are at 100% in the seasons to come. If these bags aren’t getting beat up, you’re not doing your job! Put these bags through their paces, and let us know how we can continue to improve upon them. 

High Function. Minimal Design. Positive Impact.
“The idea is to use recycled materials to create an original assortment of sustainable travel accessories that are as easy on the eyes as they are highly durable and functional. After two years of research and development, we’re bringing you 4 original designs, expertly handcrafted in a small, family-owned workshop in Japan from mostly recycled materials.”

– John Moore, Outerknown Co-Founder & Creative Director
