Thanks to Malia Designs for partnering with us on this post! All opinions are our own.
With back to school season often comes the need to replace old, worn out backpacks and book bags. We happen to be partial to the messenger style bag and we were pleased to find this Silver Leaf messenger bag from Malia Designs as a great option.
Malia Designs is a socially responsible Fair Trade brand that designs and sells handbags and accessories. Their products are handcrafted in Cambodia and every purchase helps to fight human trafficking through providing dignified jobs and funding for organizations fighting human trafficking.
These messenger bags are constructed out of a durable up-cycled cotton base material, leftover from the garment factories which are so prominent in Cambodia. You can read more about how Malia Designs sources their fabrics here. All materials for Malia Designs products are sourced locally in Cambodia and their Fair Trade production process and use of recycled materials are good for the planet.
Each bag is hand screen printed with one of Malia’s original designs, which are inspired by the natural beauty of Cambodia. A contrasting cotton lining and five functional pockets add to this bag’s style and appeal. Perfect for a small laptop or tablet and all of your everyday essentials. We were impressed with the high quality of the stitching and the sturdy nature of the bag – it is certainly built to last!
One woman that Malia Designs partners with on their cotton canvas screen printed line is Thanan and her life changing business all started with a micro loan. Her mission and passion is to provide secure, consistent employment for disabled individuals in Cambodia as they are often treated like third class citizens with little hope of finding gainful employment. The disabled population is also more vulnerable to exploitation and to traffickers. Now, Thanan employs more than fifty home-based artisans who are disabled!
