O bag has always invested in research in order to constantly offer new products to its customers.
One of the brand ingredients that played a crucial role for the success and brand awareness of O bag is the use of an innovative, ultra-lightweight material with recognisable plastic features.
The raw materials used are accurately selected by the laboratories of Silter, in Venice, for silicon, and of Finproject Spa, with registered office in Morrovalle (MC), for the XL EXTRALIGHT® material (www.xlextralight.com), exclusively MADE IN ITALY.
The O clock wristwatch straps and the O bracelets are made of food-safe silicon, an artificial material consisting of a silicon base (a natural element present in sand) and oxygen. It is a high-quality material, compliant with food regulations, completely non-toxic, odourless and tasteless, non-stick, elastic, and resistant to ageing and high temperatures.
The body of the O bag brand bags is made using XL EXTRALIGHT®, a closed cell foam material, ingeniously developed through research conducted by the Finproject S.p.A laboratories and through an exclusive production process.
This is a special plastic material with many different features: it is lightweight, flexible, colourful and versatile, with a special “soft touch” effect. It is also resistant to water, UV rays, chlorine and salt water and retains its colour over time. In addition, it is washable, does not allow bacteria to proliferate and respects the environment as it does not contain solvents harmful to health.
The O shoes flipflops are also produced with the XL EXTRALIGHT® material, which is lightweight, comfortable and colourful. The latest 2017 product is O fly, the summer frisbee, which is fun, colourful, lightweight, UV resistant and can even be used in water since it floats.
O bag is an environmentally friendly, low environmental impact choice in favour of products combining cutting-edge technical and aesthetic qualities.
The unprecedented combination of ultra-lightweight materials, obtained through industrial processes, is the result not only of an innovative approach to design but also of traditional Italian know-how.
O bag goes green!
New eco packaging for the O bag line of slippers
O bag announces another step forward towards an even more eco-friendly production.
From the Summer 2019 collection all O shoes and O slipper will have a new packaging that is more sustainable from an environmental point of view and absolutely made in Italy.
The new bag is made of GREEN PE at 60% and the CO2 saved (therefore not emitted) for production is equal to 3 tons, thus helping to reduce harmful emissions of greenhouse gases.
Green PE is not produced using crude oil, but is derived from the processing of sugar cane and is 100% recyclable in plastic.
The packaging, thanks to the resealable cord and the comfortable “backpack” shape, is suitable as a comfortable shoe rack for the gym, the swimming pool, the school, as a game carrier and as a travel bag, etc.
For an increasingly green O bag …
For its shoppers, O bag uses its own FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified paper, which guarantees the use of cellulose from responsibly managed forests and ensures reforestation.
With the FSC® label, O bag maintains its commitment over time to making increasingly responsible choices.
