Progress in Light of a Fall

The story behind this product began in the rural farmlands of Cambodia where a woman decided to take action in her community. She noticed that pesticides and solid waste used for the growing & shipping of cement, fish feed and other products was piling up and not being disposed of properly. The woman, Nyla, began purchasing the discarded materials and then employed local families to wash, dry and sew the materials into durable, water-resistant and colorful tote bags. She became inspired to create a company that employs artisans in Cambodia who have been displaced from their farmlands or affected by landmines or polio.
