YULEX is a luxuriously soft, renewable neoprene alternative made with a natural rubber, sustainably obtained from the bark of the Hevea tree. No rainforest is cut down and all sources have been certified by the Rainforest Alliance. By combining a naturally occurring raw material and renewable solar energy in the production of this fabric, the Co2 footprint was reduced by up to 80 %.
The result of a collaboration with outdoor retailer, Patagonia, YULEX was initially used exclusively for Patagonia water sports products. It has now been released worldwide and we are thrilled to be amongst the first to adopt it for our new Yulex Black Line. It is by adopting products like this that we all get to change the world one bag at a time.
