How can travel, a resource-consumer action, become more sustainable and, most importantly, how can we, as inhabitants of the earth, better protect our home? These are the main concepts of the creators of Nortvi, a new and fresh brand that main purpose is to create memories and a sustainable approach to travel.
Nortvi is a brand based in Amsterdam, Netherlands that creates travel bags and other accessories meant to make life easier, more stylish, and most importantly, more eco-friendly.
The brand is rather new, it was launched in 2019, and since then it already entered the market with its elegant designs.
First of all, when thinking about Nortvi, one should have in mind sustainability, because that was their first concern. Nowadays travelling became an accessible action for anyone, due to the always evolving means of transport. In this context, travelling is not only a fun activity, but it is also a polluting factor and the environmental consequences of travelling are mostly underestimated.
One principle of sustainability is using products and objects that can pass easily the test of time, and that doesn't always need to be replaced. The problem with much travelling luggage is that they will become disposable after a few flights - the materials used aren't very durable and they scratch or rip easily.
As the creator's vision describes, durable travel luggage that respects the environment should be the new norm. Through well-thought design and high-quality materials, this goal can be easily accomplished. The shell of the Nortvi's suitcases is made of extremely strong and eco-friendly polycarbonate, while the interior lining is made from recycled PET bottles. This is what should be called the formula for a good life companion on any trip.
High quality and great design are the perfect answer to travelling in style. Nortvi's suitcases design is stylish, simple and elegant, with good materials that feels like "a stylish extension of your outfit". The suitcases are a good option for any kind of trip. They are equipped with a water-resistant front pocket for laptops or other electronics.
For extra comfort and joy during travelling, Nortvi tried to manage the well-known problem of the noisy wheel. According to them, the wheels used to the suitcases, Japanese Hinomoto wheels, have proven to be the most silent runners in the world.
Sustainability is the main pillar of Nortvi, besides using high quality, eco-friendly materials, they are also trying to do more for a plastic-free environment. They became official supporters of the WWF by donating for every made purchase. Other campaigns are targets the burnout problems of the healthcare staff in the context of the global pandemic, by offering special weekends away.
People like to move from one place to another, with all kinds of purposes, from work purposes, to simply travelling as a hobby. No matter your motive, travelling creates lots of unforgettable memories. Nortvi's goal is to help create good memories by offering high-quality travel bags for travelling in style.
