Our Favorite Books
"Brief Answers to the Big Questions" by Stephen Hawking
"The world-famous cosmologist and #1 bestselling author of A Brief History of Time leaves us with his final thoughts on the universe's biggest questions in this brilliant posthumous work. Is there a God? How did it all begin? Can we predict the future? What is inside a black hole? Is there other intelligent life in the universe? Will artificial intelligence outsmart us? How do we shape the future? Will we survive on Earth? Should we colonise space? Is time travel possible? (...) Hawking always believed that science could also be used to fix the problems on our planet. And now, as we face potentially catastrophic changes here on Earth - from climate change to dwindling natural resources to the threat of artificial super-intelligence - Stephen Hawking turns his attention to the most urgent issues for humankind. Wide-ranging, intellectually stimulating, passionately argued, and infused with his characteristic humour, BRIEF ANSWERS TO THE BIG QUESTIONS, the final book from one of the greatest minds in history, is a personal view on the challenges we face as a human race, and where we, as a planet, are heading next."

Our Bag of the Month
Every month we're gonna pick a bag of the month, tell you some behind the scenes facts and even better - our bag of the month will be 10% off for the whole month! The discount will be applied automatically at checkout - no discount code needed!
Our first bag of the month is our tote bag JUNÏ. She's perfect for carrying everything you need on longer days and the outer pockets offer quick and easy access to things like your phone, wallet or a book.
A funny story about JUNÏ: originally we didn't plan the outer pockets. They kind of happened through a misunderstanding with our producer. But when we got the first samples we really liked the big, super accessible pockets and decided to keep them. Sometimes the best things happen by "accident"!
The past month your parcels traveled 34,614 km and we were able to offset 21.6 kg of CO₂- woohoo!
