Being completely handmade, each of these bags has unique and inimitable features.

 

WE ARE SUSTAINABLE FOR PEOPLE AND THE ENVIRONMENT

Our eco-friendly bags are made with 100% organic materials and passion.

The process of both vegetable tanning and weaving is energy- and resource-saving, with minimum usage of water and electricity.
