Gaston Luga

Trendy Gaston Luga is a Stockholm-based manufacturer of high-quality backpacks and accessories. The brand takes its inspiration from Scandinavian design, lifestyle and living.

Gaston Luga is inspired by a vision of living effortlessly. Gaston Luga's products are designed not only with Scandinavian aesthetics and roots in mind but not forgetting functionality.

The brand wants its products to be easy and everlasting travel companions for its users. Timeless accessories focus on design, durability, and versatility in use.

Gaston Luga's design combines classic clarity with a touch of pop culture and the underground. The combination, according to the brand, feeds curiosity and style.

Gaston Luga is responsible and conscious and wants to contribute to a better future for the planet. The brand manufactures its products ethically and aims to minimize the climate impact of its production process.

The products use synthetic leather instead of traditional leather. The packaging is made from FSC-certified paper and printed with soy ink.

As an organization, Gaston Luga has been carbon neutral since 2019. In partnership with Carbon Footprint Ltd, the company offsets its carbon emissions by making donations to the Escarpment Environment Conservation Network (Esconet) for a local forest restoration project in the Great Rift Valley in Kenya.
