Luggage series QWSTION
Bags are either chic or practical, classy or functional. Only rarely are they both - unless they come from QWSTION. The small company with great motivation to question the common norms focuses on sustainable design and functional luggage for all situations in life - from long-distance travel 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 should be more functional than a classic leather bag and more elegant than a sports backpack, on the one hand robust and resistant, on the other hand made of natural materials.
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 backpack - and vice versa. Characteristic are the wide fabric straps. They form - elaborately and robustly sewn - the structure of the bags in almost all parts of the series. Thanks to the hard-wearing outer material and many practical features, they are perfect companions for everyday use.
QWSTION makes no compromises in the choice of materials. The Swiss use organic cotton and recycled materials that are processed with the highest standards. The most important production partner is a small manufactory 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 fibers of the banana plant, 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 given and the established. For example, the dedicated team conducted intensive material research over a period of three years. The banana plant abaca 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.
No matter the base material, a layer of beeswax makes the fabrics used water-repellent and hard-wearing. With use, the bags from QWSTION develop a beautiful patina.
