O MY BAG is an Amsterdam based brand committed to making a positive difference in the world.
By connecting producers in small communities to the global market they
create fairly paid job opportunities. As a company they are constantly striving to improve their processes to become more conscious, sustainable and eco-friendly.
O MY BAG tries to have a minimal environmental impact by using eco-friendly leathers. Their lovely bags are made from luxurious, vegetable-tanned leathers that are made without the use of harmful chemicals like chromium and have no synthetic top finish.
This natural leather has an open structure, which means that scratching will occur and irregularity in color and texture are a part of this leather. These characteristics make it a unique product that ages beautifully over time deepening in color and getting softer over time.
The Canvas Collection and dust bags by O MY BAG are made from GOTS certificated cotton.
This cotton is organic and grown without any harmful pesticides or fertilizers, to preserve soil health.
No heavy chemicals are used during the dyeing process.
The GOTS certification also guarantees fair trade conditions. All employees work in a safe and healthy environment and they earn living wages. O MY BAG donates a portion of revenue annually to support local projects in India.
An example is the donation of school bags to the Brickfield Schools project, an organization that provides school lessons to the children of workers in multiple West Bengal Brickfields.
