Taking a step beyond artisan made our new collaboration with Hartwood House brings you handcrafted bags that are not only sustainably made but gives back to restore rainforests & habitat protection Borneo, Indonesia.
“Known as the ‘lungs of the Earth’ the rain forests in Indonesia provide 45% of the Earths oxygen.”
As you may know, the Indonesia forest has been under threat for some time, due to the large corporations’ pursuit of palm oil.
Whilst living in Bali, Indonesia founder Elly Brown witness the devasting effects of land clearing in Borneo by the large industrial corporations in pursuit of land to plant their “cash crop” palm oil, which is a cheap ingredient found in cosmetics and food products.
Feeling compelled to take action, she founded “Hartwood House” which is a collection of Traditional rattan bags from Borneo, Indonesia. Our raw rattan is sustainably harvested as part of a community project.
Profits from each bag sold will be donated to The Orangutan Project and contribute to buying back land, habitat protection and animal aid in Borneo.
We’re so happy to be collaborating with Hartwood House & to bring both their beautiful brand and cause to you so we can all make decisions that contribute to help sustain our planet natural resources & beauty.
The Hartwood House collection is now available here
