Mutatio promotes change, from plant-based leather made from Piñatex® pineapple leaves and Desserto® cactus which are both partially biodegradable. 100% ECONYL® regenerated nylon used in our shell, lining, webbing, tape and binding. This yarn can be infinitely recycled with no loss of quality. Recycled PET (plastic bottles) for our NATULON® zippers, labels and threads! Adaptation is in the consumers hands.

About Bond Morgan
Bond Morgan is a designer that encourages everyone to invest in a few things that can go a long way. As a designer brand, we are committed to sustainability and a better, more ethical lifestyle for all. Creating bags that are functional and stylish, sustainable and ethical that can be worn time and time again in multiple different ways. The brand launched in 2020 during the peak of the pandemic, with a sustainable multifunctional, multipurpose bag that focuses on sustainable circular materials and we are dedicated to production in the UK by working with manufactures in England.
With 9 years left to reach the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development that address global challenges related to human development, poverty, climate change, human rights and environmental sustainability. We design with innovation at the forefront whether this be in the materials we use or our design concept.
The ethos of the brand is to focus on ethical fashion initiatives, from plant-based leather to recycled or regenerated materials. Each detail of our design and production has been carefully researched from the thread through to the webbing, every aspect of this bag is sustainable - making it one of the few fully sustainable bags available on the market. We have used circular materials that help close the loop in the fashion industry today.
Our production processes, supply chains are clean and responsible, making us the top choice for customers who value sustainability. Our designs are unisex. We ensure that our suppliers support the environmental ethos of the brand by focusing on their quality of materials.
Shopping for sustainable fashion is just one of so many ways we can all do our bit to combat climate change. Whether it's getting rid of plastic bags, switching to reusable products or pursuing a sustainable lifestyle. We put sustainability at the heart of our practices by sourcing the highest quality materials worldwide.
We love animals. Our new line cuts out animal products all together. We only use plant-based, regenerated or recycled materials. Piñatex® as an alternative to leather and petroleum-based textiles. Natural, non-woven material made from pineapple leaf fibers. It is a by-product of the agriculture industry. No extra land, water or pesticides are required to produce this lightweight and durable material. At its end-of-life it can be shred into geotextiles. There are 13 million tons of waste from pineapple agriculture every year. With this waste, over 50% of the global leather production could be replaced, without planting a single pineapple, which helps give a second income to the local community.
As the population grows, consumer consumption increases. The result, increased waste. We believe in solving this issue by using ECONYL® regenerated nylon, made from waste that is rescued from many sources around the world including fishing nets, carpets, fabric straps and industrial plastic waste.
The fashion industry continues, new clothes are being thrown away, trends keep changing and consumers continue to buy. On average, there is a 52-season cycle, meaning the fashion industry can offer a new collection every week but a modular design creates a circular fashion economy. The Ellen MacArthur Foundation defines a circular economy as,
‘a sustainable, cost-effective, high-quality, environmentally friendly and environmentally sustainable economy’.
Through our brand, we aim to inspire others. The values we follow, and the decisions we make today, impact those who are here tomorrow. Our donation scheme helps, One Tree Planted who share the same values and help to impact the world. The Mutatio collection by Bond Morgan is currently stocked in Wolf & Badger London and available online at www.bondmorgan.com.
