What does sustainable mean for us?

Everyone is talking about sustainability, but what does sustainability exactly mean for our brand?
On the one hand, environmental protection plays a major role. This is achieved, for example, by substances that are free of toxic chemicals or animal components. On the other hand, working conditions play a crucial role. We, therefore, work closely with our partners in Germany and India and would like to make our contribution to spreading fair working conditions.
According to our mission, we think that an environmentally conscious lifestyle can only prevail if you do not have to give up on something. Sustainability must not be a compromise, but an optimal alternative. That is why we make sure that our ecological backpacks, wallets, and accessories have a timeless design and convince with well thought-out functions.


When you read “vegan”, you often think of vegan recipes first, but other products can also be completely animal-free and therefore be produced without animal suffering. We have received the {APPROVED VEGAN} certificate from PETA, the largest animal welfare organization in the world, and are now working on ensuring that the thought of “vegan” will also include the vegan backpack or bag in the future.

Why a sustainable backpack from Sperling…?

Our Sperling backpacks made of cork and organic cotton are the perfect companion for your everyday life. Water-repellent fabrics, high-quality workmanship and many inner and outer compartments make our “Daily” model your ideal daypack.

All backpacks have a padded laptop compartment and allow you to always transport your devices safely in your new laptop backpack.

Our backpacks combine these useful aspects with groundbreaking sustainability. Only environmentally friendly materials are used, we ensure fair and transparent production and donate to an animal welfare center with every sale.

Why a sustainable wallet from Sperling…?

Both men and women will find their new favourite with our cork wallets. All our vegan wallets are of high quality, are durable, and have compartments for many cards, coins and bills.

Our vegan men’s wallet made of cork fits in (almost) every pocket with its small external dimensions. It can also be turned into a practical, small card case in seconds.

Our ladies wallet made of cork is a sustainable wallet with a zipper. All your cards are safely stowed here. Although it is a small women’s wallet, it has a divided compartment for banknotes, space for coins and space for photos and other items.

Sustainable gift ideas at Sperling

In the Sperling online shop, you will find sustainable gifts for women and men. Give away e.g. an environmentally friendly wallet made of cork for Christmas or let your loved ones look forward to one of our fairly manufactured bags. Of course, we also offer you vouchers that you can either print out yourself or have us sent to you. Since all products do not contain animal ingredients, they are vegan and are, therefore, also the perfect gift for vegans

Sustainable materials

Only environmentally friendly materials are used for our sustainable backpacks, bags and purses. We are talking about ecological aspects, such as environmental protection, on the one hand, and the robustness and durability of the fabrics, on the other.


Cork is also known as vegan leather. The properties of the cork fabric are comparable to those of animal leather. Cork is water-repellent, robust, tear- and abrasion-resistant, washable, elastic and very light. A sustainable backpack or wallet made of cork is just as durable as a leather backpack or wallet made of leather. However, they have a significantly better ecological footprint.

Also, different from conventional leather, is its origin, which is purely plantbased. Cork is extracted from the bark of the Portuguese cork oaks. You can find out more information about cork on the info page.

Organic cotton

Some Sperling products, such as our sustainable rolltop backpacks, are made of cork and organic cotton. This is grown under controlled conditions under fair working conditions and without pollutants. It is, therefore, perfect for the production of sustainable backpacks, vegan purses and ecological accessories, or in general fair fashion. You can find out more information about organic cotton on our material overview.

No plastic

All zippers and buckles on our vegan backpacks and vegan wallets are made of metal. This means that, on the one hand, they are significantly more durable and, on the other hand, they have a better environmental balance than components made of plastic.

Transparent, fair production

For the manufacture of our products, we work with several partners, such as a workshop for the disabled in Germany or a small manufacture in India. It is of great significance to us, that we support fair production with our start-up. That is why it is important to us that we have a friendly relationship with the people who lovingly sew our sustainable bags and accessories every day. This is the only way we can find out what is important to you and can help with future developments.

Of course, we want you to know who sewed your backpack too. That is why transparency plays a major role for us. For example, follow us on Instagram, where we keep posting exciting background information on our partners.

Our contribute to animal welfare

Our produced backpacks, wallets, etc. do not harm humans, animals or the environment. Nevertheless, we would like to help with our start-up and therefore donate to the Butenland Animal Welfare Farm for every product sold. With your decision for a sustainable backpack you are not only making yourself happy, but you are also making sure that a cow’s daily feed requirements are met.
