What We Do

Made in New Zealand by the charity SpinningTop, Defender Bags have been designed especially to defend the environment and defend human rights.

Full profits from the sale of each bag go to SpinningTop, an amazing organisation who for the past ten years have been supporting vulnerable children living in extreme poverty on the Thai/Burma border – giving kids back a childhood and strengthening communities. Find out more about SpinningTop projects here.

Shoppers and Totes are perfect for day to day, the vege market, a gym or swimming bag, you name it.
Satchels are an ideal about-town bag. Fully lined with two internal pockets (for phone and pens), an adjustable length strap and secure velcro front-flap fastening, these are the perfect bag for uni or the office.

  • Please Note: Due to the nature of the recycled materials used to create this bag, over time the bag may experience wear to the printed area. This is not a fault, it just adds to the originality of each and every Defender Bag.

Bags can be made using your own company's billboards, or our source of mixed billboards. Specific styles are available including ipad case, shopping bags, satchels, laptop bags and bookbags, or we are happy to work with you to develop a bag that suits both your need and your budget.
