Japanese luggage and bag label Lojel has launched its first flagship in Hong Kong.

Located on Fashion Walk in Causeway Bay, the store offers sustainably made carry-essentials made from more than 700 kg of repurposed production waste. 

The store’s front is made from sheet-pressed upcycled plastic panels (PP material) developed during manufacturing, recycled PP packaging (yoghurt cups, food containers), and otherwise unusable Lojel manufacturing waste. 

The centrepiece, the Lojel logomark installation, is built from recycled PET (rPET) and upcycled plastic panels using modern 3D printing technology.

In line with its sustainability approach, the store will offer an upcycled luggage tag created from 100 per cent repurposed Lojel faulty products.

Founded in Japan in 1989 by Chih Chang Chiang, Lojel is headquartered in Hong Kong and currently has operations in Asia, North America and Europe.
