Are you an outdoor enthusiast who loves spending time in nature? Do you want to invest in adventure gear that is both stylish and sustainable? Look no further than Sealand – a local lifestyle brand that creates responsibly made gear and apparel, all handmade in Cape Town from waste or ethically and responsibly sourced materials.
A Mission for Sustainability
Sealand has a clear mission – to ensure that every decision made keeps the planet and people front and centre. Their gear is made from materials ranging from hemp to yacht sails, and they have recently introduced ECONYL® regenerated nylon – a revolutionary material made from waste such as fishing nets, fabric scraps, carpet flooring, and industrial plastic. Sealand rescues and sorts the waste, cleans it to recover all possible nylon, and then uses it to create durable and weather-resistant gear.
The Recycled Rowlie Backpack
The Recycled Rowlie backpack is a showstopper and perfect for multi-day trails or a quick hike up Lion’s Head. It’s versatile, trendy, and functional, making it suitable for anything, whether on land or sea. The 30-litre backpack has two external water bottle pockets, an external padded laptop sleeve, and adjustable, curved straps that ensure it sits snugly on your back. The signature roll-up feature of the backpack allows you to adjust it when closing it so you can hold a variety of items, big and small. The backpack is lightweight, versatile, and can follow you along any path you choose to explore.
The Sealand Experience
Sealand is part of the slow fashion movement, promoting sustainable and ethical fashion design, production, and consumption. Every Sealand bag has the name of the skilled craftsperson who made it, each with a unique story to share. It is easy to get your hands on Sealand gear – you can visit their stores, including Sealand Experience Store, Sealand Kiosk, Sealand Stellenbosch, and Sealand Campus, or visit their website or Instagram page.
Invest in adventure gear that lasts and promotes sustainability or spoil a loved one with an online gift voucher. Sealand offers everything from sleek shirts to groovy bucket hats, lunchboxes, laptop cases, moon bags, duffel bags, wallets, coolers, and more.
Find Your Fit
The Recycled Rowlie backpack is available in four colours: stone, onyx, aqua, and saffron. If your adventure entails getting wet, you can invest in a Recycled Rowlie Plus +, which comes with a dry bag.
Sealand is more than just a brand, it’s a lifestyle. With their stylish and sustainable adventure gear, Sealand encourages you to explore nature while keeping the planet and people in mind.
