BioLight Bag Collection


QWSTION has designed a lightweight, durable and water-resistant backpack from plant and natural fibres.

Lightness with low impact: minimum weight, water resistance and durability are important aspects of modern everyday bags. Most commonly this is achieved using petroleum-based fibres.

Swiss brand and studio QWSTION has created the BioLight bags from plants, instead of typical plastic materials. The fibres are 100 percent natural and biodegradable.

Years of material research resulted in lightweight everyday bags for a circular economy, made from a combination of a banana fibre structure with a superlight organic cotton shell.

This project has been longlisted in the sustainable design category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
