O My Bag
O My Bag is an incredible company located in Amsterdam. This studio designs the most wonderful leather bags, purses, wallets and laptop sleeves. Their designs are simple and sophisticated with small details that make them shine like brass closures and chain details. O My Bag designs are classic and timeless, suitable for all kinds of styles, occasions and people.
But of course, there’s something else I love about O My Bag, their dedication to eliminating fast fashion and to protecting the environment. O My Bag uses leather that is waste from the meat industry and they also use vegetable tanning methods so that means no harmful chemicals are used in the process that can leak back into the environment. The vegetable tanning process also means that leathers are ultimately biodegradable, pretty incredible right?!
On top of that, O My Bag also uses FSC certified packaging materials and organic cotton for their dust bags and canvas products.
The artisans each tannery works with all ensure that their staff are treated with respect and paid fairly, so rest assured that your bag was made by someone who is cared for and valued.
O My Bag is doing such amazing work for the design world and in a socially and environmentally responsible way. It’s so encouraging to discover brands like O My Bag and know that we are gradually getting closer to eliminating terrible design processes that plague the fashion world right now.
