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 am very happy with my purchase. The size is perfect. Many zipper pockets and us comfortable. The only downfall is items don’t stay in the inside unzippered pockets.
I’m a nurse, and I bought this bag in “pig” for my hospital stuff. I love it! It’s the perfect size. It has many pockets and compartments to keep things organize, and it is super cute! It also seems very well made. I suspect it will hold up for a long time. I also love that I can wipe it down with a Sani-wipe before heading home at the end of my shift.
