Recycled into Beautiful
Founder Genia Mineeva started off as a political journalist, spending years working in the BBC newsroom. Her inquisitive nature took her into the world of campaigning but one story really got under her skin: coffee cup waste. How could these recyclable objects be wasted—simply because there was no market for the recycled material?
Genia dug deeper and discovered the untapped potential of innovative recycled materials rescued from landfill. There wasn’t much of a ‘market’ yet for these recycled materials, especially premium, recycled leather. So she created one. And BEEN London was born.
A refined union of form and function, this beautifully-made unisex backpack will become your everyday bag. It's versatile enough to take you from meetings to the gym, and from the park to a weekend away.
Handcrafted in London.
