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.

Yes! The backpack is well made. I particularly like the outside pockets that are big enough for a water bottle, the zippered pockets inside and the snaps that allow expansion and of course the recycled material. This backpack and I are going to have alot of fun together.
I really like this bag! It's a good size, small but not too small, lots of great pockets inside and out, and seems durable so far (haven't had it very long). But when they say variable shipping they mean it; it took about a month for my order to arrive, and only after I emailed them to see where the package was at. No complaints after that, but just be aware.
