CARE If needed, hand wash your QWSTION item using a soft cloth and lukewarm water. Air dry thoroughly, leather and metal parts should be washed and dried extra carefully. Do not machine wash or tumble dry. QWSTION products are warranted to be free from manufacturing defects for two years from original date of purchase. This applies when used for the purpose intended and under normal conditions.
All products are designed and developed in a studio in Zurich. Production takes place in Europe and China - the most important partner is the city of Huizhou, about 120 kilometers from Hong Kong. Since 2010, we have been working with a small factory owned by Ms. Wan and Mr. Lai. The factory is audited by BSCI (Business and Social Compliance Initiative), a European Union initiative to bring European standards to countries outside the EU. Regular visits to suppliers provide insight into the manufacturers of QWSTION products and achieve exceptional quality. The brand believes in the truth of materials and uses renewable sources wherever possible for outer fabrics, linings, belts and metal components. The largest part of today's textile production is based on plastics, which has a dramatic impact on nature and people.
The company has chosen to develop its own materials and use natural fibers wherever possible to achieve the highest sustainability. Using organically grown fibers and PFC-free water-repelling coatings, we avoid harmful substances and create healthy products. In addition to our own high-density organic cotton fabric, it has launched Bananatex®, a new outer fabric made from banana plant fibers. Nearly 100% of the fibers used in QWSTION products are natural and renewable resources.
For straps and cords, rayon, cotton or nylon has been used, and metal parts are made of aluminum or steel. An important aspect of sustainability is durability. Hand-tanned leather handles and details darken and become softer with time. Natural materials usually have irregularities, which are accepted as a feature that adds individuality to the look of backpacks. Even if natural canvas can't compete with the resilience of petroleum-based materials such as Cordura, Kevlar or Trucktarps, the materials and level of workmanship the brand offers are designed for years of daily use. The heritage of Swiss modernist design has influenced the company's thinking, putting continuous development and improvement at the forefront.
