    General Information

    Handheld bag - HIP POUCH by QWSTION made of 100 percent natural canvas fabric Bananatex®. The handy bag for your essentials, with adjustable hip or shoulder strap. Two interior compartments make it easy to organize the contents, which are protected by the water-repellent beeswax coating. But the highlight is the material: after several years of material research and development, Swiss bag manufacturer QWSTION has designed a textile that is fully woven into the Zurich label's DNA: Bananatex® is the world's first technical fabric made from fibers of the Abacá banana plant, which is cultivated organically in the Philippine highlands. As a natural alternative to synthetic, petroleum-based textiles, the in-house development is not only ecological and economical, but - processed for the first time in the latest bag collection - very robust and durable, light and flexible with a finely textured feel. A layer of beeswax makes the sustainable canvas fabric water-repellent, hard-wearing and develops a beautiful patina with use.

    QWSTION luggage series

    Bags are either chic or practical, elegant or functional. Only rarely are they both - unless they come from QWSTION. The small company with great motivation to challenge the usual norms focuses on design for functional luggage in all situations - from long journeys to everyday mobility. Behind QWSTION is a team of dedicated specialists led by Swiss industrial designer Christian Kaegi. It all started with a piece of luggage that was to be more functional than a classic leather bag and more elegant than a sports rucksack, robust and hard-wearing on the one hand and made from natural materials on the other. Influenced by the signature of Swiss design, the QWSTION team develops timeless designs with practical details from Zurich - and with impressive precision. For example, every bag is also a rucksack - and vice versa. The wide fabric straps are characteristic. They form the structure of the bags - elaborately and robustly sewn - in almost all parts of the range. Thanks to the hard-wearing outer material and many practical features, they are perfect everyday companions. QWSTION makes no compromises when it comes to the choice of materials. The Swiss company uses organic cotton and recycled materials that are processed to the highest standards. The most important production partner is a small factory in the city of Huizhou outside Hong Kong, which is BSCI (Business and Social Compliance Initiative) certified. The EU initiative aims to implement European standards with regard to working conditions and ecological aspects in non-EU countries. Alternatively, the manufacturer has been launching its own textile on the market for some time: Bananatex® is the world's first technical fabric made from banana plant fibers, which is now being used for the first time in the company's own bag collection. Because QWSTION is a variation of the English word "question", the Swiss question the established and established. The dedicated team conducted intensive material research for over three years. The abaca banana plant is cultivated in the Philippine highlands. As a natural alternative to synthetic, petroleum-based textiles, the in-house development is not only ecological and economical, but also very robust and durable, light and flexible, with a finely textured feel. Regardless of the base material, a layer of beeswax makes the fabrics used water-repellent and hard-wearing. With use, QWSTION bags develop a beautiful patina.
