Millican Reveals The Core Collection
A line of environmentally conscious daypacks and accessories
Launching Wednesday March 18
Millican launches a new sustainable collection of accessories featuring practical daypacks, wash bags, and utility pouches. Designed for the actively aware, The Core Collection is created from 100% recycled PET fabric, a well-built ethical foundation to the lightweight yet hardworking products.
Millican has set out to inspire everyday actions with The Core Collection, a PETA-Approved Vegan range of weatherproof backpacks and accessories. Connecting to the force for good, The Core Collection by Millican provides a responsible and good-looking solution for those seeking a sustainable lifestyle. Giving purpose to plastic and becoming part of the solution, each piece in The Core Collection is made from recycled bottles which would have otherwise ended up in landfills.
Made with the urban traveller in mind, The Core Roll Pack, made from 26 plastic bottles, has a clean and simple aesthetic, with functionality at the forefront. Available in two sizes, it features an internal laptop sleeve, stash pocket, external bottle pocket, and key loop. Sitting alongside the collection of roll-top backpacks is a range of handy accessories – a pencil case, utility pouch, and wash bag. The colour palette covers the modern classics of Black Night, Sky Blue, Ocean Green and Sunset Orange.
Known for their hardworking travel bags, Millican has always been inspired by the freedom and empowerment of exploration. A sustainable travel goods brand based in the Lake District, Millican was founded on the idea of making a better choice for the bag on your back. With their focus on intentional living, The Core Collection is Millican’s first dedicated look at the daily adventures of modern life. Inspired by the idea that our everyday actions have an impact, The Core Collection brings the Millican brand to a new urban audience.
Brand Director, Jeffrey Bowman states: “We pride ourselves on creating premium products that add value to become life-long travel companions. Our design philosophy is driven by sustainable values and the mantra ‘Use Less, Be More’. The Core Collection is a really exciting collection for us as it allows a younger audience to have a bag that echoes our sustainable values while being affordable, functional and capturing the Millican aesthetics.”
Jeffrey continues: “We are encouraging responsible and conscious consumerism in a world of fast fashion. We are trying to slow things down by offering a small capsule collection that takes care of everyday travel needs. The Core Collection’s fabric, which is made from 100% post-consumer plastic waste, encourages consumers to consider their impact on the planet when purchasing new products.”
In 1901, the brand’s namesake, Millican Dalton, lived in a cave in Borrowdale Valley, in the Lake District, choosing experience over material gain, making his own lightweight clothing and bags and living a simple life exploring the mountains he had made his home. It’s this maverick spirit that guides Millican in everything they do.
