We believe you should know the whole story. Most importantly, you should know who made your bag. At our family run workshop in Bali we employ talented craftsman and help develop their skills so they can provide for both their families and communities.
The Bali workshop
Each one of our ethically handmade, leather bags and accessories comes from our family owned and run workshop in Canggu, Bali. Run by master craftsman Gito and his wife Sundari, our craftsmen used to work for Quicksilver and Volcom and like so many in Indonesia, lost their jobs due to the trade shift to China, Fast forward and our workshop now supports over a dozen talented artisans, the majority of which support extended families in Java. Our workshop is very much a family environment, with Sundari often hosting communal lunches of traditional Indonesian cuisine.
