Welcome to the Eastpak Artist Studio

EASTPAK bags are already famous for reflecting their users' personalities, almost becoming an extension of their own bodies. Now they have become an extension of the world's foremost creative minds as well, thanks to the EASTPAK Artist Studio. 77 of the continent’s most creative personalities have been selected to produce original creations from a number of limited edition 'blank' EASTPAK bags. The artists have been selected from different backgrounds and include painters, sculptors and poets as well as musicians, graffiti artists and television personalities. EASTPAK is proud to support this select group of artists and the communities that feed their inspiration. All proceeds of sales of these one-of-a-kind creations will be donated to a local charity organisation in each participating country.

EASTPAK Artist Studio. A bag that's as original as you are.

BJÖRN SCHULZ FOUNDATION

The German-wide BJÖRN SCHULZ FOUNDATION was founded in 1996. It is dedicated to providing comprehensive and professional help to families with critically and terminally ill children and young people. The Foundation is passionate about its charter, guided by the understanding that when a child is critically ill, the whole family is affected. Several projects, such as the children’s hospital “SONNENHOF” in Berlin and the ambulant FAMILIENBEGLEITER as well as many honorary helpers help fulfill the Foundation’s commitment. Their work is mostly financed by donations. The foundation is named after a little boy who died at the age of 7 from leukemia.

Teenage Cancer Trust

Every day in the UK, six young people aged between 13 and 24 are diagnosed with cancer, and this number is constantly rising. Usually placed on a children’s hospital ward or with elderly patients, young people’s specific needs are often neglected. Teenage Cancer Trust knows that young people have a much better chance in their fight against cancer if they are treated by teenage cancer experts in an environment tailored to their needs. So we build specialist teenage cancer units in hospitals across the UK, which bring young people together to support each other and are designed to help them best cope with gruelling treatment and long stays in hospital.
