By purchasing our products you support their programs, the women involved and their families. We believe we can support each other in realizing our dreams. Empowered women, empower women.Read more
Handmade for you
Living in the Philippines with its beautiful beaches we understand what a good beach bag needs! By combining beautiful, locally handwoven textiles with a water repellent inside, these bags are designed for sustainable use.
We use local, handwoven textiles with traditional, century old patterns, which often have fascinating stories. Some were even used in the 17th century by Spanish galleons, proving their durability.
Our bagmakers are highly skilled craftswomen.
We train mothers to become bagmakers and help them with the design and sales of their products, so they have an income and can send their kids to school. Of your purchase, all proceeds after material, logistics, tax and overhead costs will go to the mothers in the form of salary and foundation support.
