The story of these bags began in the rural farmlands of Cambodia where a local woman decided to take action in her community. Farmers were not only living in poverty but also in a toxic environment. This woman noticed that the bags used for processing and shipping of fish and animal feed, cement, and other products were piling up and not being disposed of properly. She began purchasing the discarded materials from the communities and recycling it. She then employed local families to wash, dry and sew the materials into durable, water resistant and colorful tote bags.
While visiting a night market in Cambodia, Nyla, an American woman, noticed the recycled materials and met the wonderful Cambodian woman. They discussed the opportunity for Nyla to design her own products which, the artisans would then produce in the comfort of their communities. Upon learning the backstory of the artisans and the recycled materials, Nyla became inspired to create a company that contributes to Cambodian artisans’ well being while encouraging style with a global conscience.
Since the onset, Nyla has developed relationships with more artisans in Cambodia and is now employing communities who have been displaced from their farmlands or affected by landmines or polio.

I was extremely excited when I found out about Give Back Goods! I have been looking for a non-animal based wallet for some time and couldn’t pull the trigger on anything. I have had my current wallet that I got from Guatemala for quite some time and love what it represents, but it was time to let it go. So glad I could continue to represent and support places and people that inspire me. Hoping this wallet lasts for years, but I know where to turn when I need a new one again!
