"Sails, once one with nature, holding the memory of light, wind, and waves, are lovingly transformed into handmade bags and purses that embody sustainable design and detail-loving craftsmanship at their core."
COA GOA uses a large proportion of recycled materials such as recycled polyester. The raw material comes from upcycled sails that give a unique texture, color, and look.
The brand manufactures all of its bags in Portugal under fair conditions. However, it doesn't provide any information regarding how it chooses its network of suppliers, or how often audits are conducted to ensure social standards, good working conditions, and identify potential risk areas.
COA GOA doesn't use any exotic animal skins, wool, fur, or down feathers but uses natural leather to create its designs. Today, the leather industry is responsible for the mass killing of animals for materialistic reasons. No animal should have to suffer or die to make beautiful and affordable fashion.
COA GOA doesn't show any measurement of its greenhouse gas emissions, water, land, and energy use, pollution, and waste across its supply chain. It doesn't have any clear sustainability goal or timeline to improve in the future either.
