We are a young start-up with a big ambition.
We want to shake up the dry cleaning industry and stop the unnecessary use of plastic.
WE OFFER A UNIQUE SOLUTION
The URBAG has a unique design, and we are ecstatic to announce that it also has been granted the registered design status by the Intellectual Property Office.
The fabric we use is the most ecological and of the highest quality available on the market today.
It's fully traceable and manufactured responsibly.
It's handmade in partnership with social enterprises in London who provide fair pay, training and new employment opportunities to long-term unemployed and marginalised communities to lift them out of poverty.
The URBAG is beautifully designed, durable, weather-proof, convenient and easy to use for both customers and dry cleaners.
It's by making small changes that we drive huge impacts!
URBAG is an initiative driven by a strong societal and environmental spirit.
We have combined the design of an unique 3-in-1 bag with the use of a mobile app to eliminate plastic garment bags and automate dry cleaning operations, whilst empowering marginalised communities

ABOUT THE FOUNDER
Marie Callan has worked in sustainability and social enterprises for most of her career, in the UK and overseas.
She has previously run a number of charities and start-ups with a focus on helping build a better future and eliminating plastic packaging.
No one seemed to be addressing plastic usage in dry cleaners. And so, while on maternity leave, and after many prototypes and conversations with industry leaders, the URBAG came to life.
She's started the project in 2019 and has launched it while being pregnant with her second child. Just to show that a woman and a mum can successfully create and run a start-up!
