On a buying trip to South Africa we were introduced to Jeanneke Malan, owner of a boutique factory, Mia Melange.
We felt honored to be working with her and her team as it's important we support and work with artisans that believes in empowering women and creating opportunities. Jeanneke is passionate about the local community and strives to create jobs for previously unemployed women in the Western Cape.
In store and online we sell our Luna Cotton Rope Bag, which is a traditional fisherman cotton net bag (great for easy errands or the beach). The design is a more elevated version of the net bag and ideal for everyday use. The bag is very durable and packs flat for easy travel. All of the bags are made from 100% cotton rope which is carefully sewn together in a coiling technique. The yarns are spun in South African mills and the rope is braided locally in Cape Town.
