HOW TO GET STARTED

  1. When your current dopp kit reaches the end of life, swap it out for a full leather dopp kit
  2. Take the Dopp kit switch as an opportunity to clean out old items from your Dopp kit
  3. Use a little leather oil if you'd like to make your kit more supple and prevent it from aging
  4. Include other sustainable materials in your kit such as razors, toothbrushes, and other personal care items - create a completely sustainable dopp kit

EMBRACE

  1. Can be used for years if properly cared for
  2. Is based on a simple/elegant design that uses one type of material
  3. Does not have any synthetic liner material - 100% leather
  4. Will not emit microplastics. Completely biodegradable


AVOID PRODUCT TYPE

Polyester Dopp/Toiletry Kit


AVOID

  1. Polyester kits will likely have a long life, but best to avoid microplastics whenever possible
  2. Not as aesthetically appealing as leather or canvas alternatives
  3. Lower-end zippers will often fail before the rest of the kit wears out


Noteworthy Product Attributes

This dopp kit is made in the USA of very high-quality leather. The kit is very supple. The construction contains no synthetic inner liner which is yet another plus.
