I am crazy about bags! I have every size of bag imaginable. When I'm out of the house, I usually have at least 3 on me. I literally have bags inside bags! Designer styles are not important to me; I need something functional and durable. So, when I found out that Net Effect Traders specializes in practical bags that are also cute, support a great cause, AND help our environment, I couldn't wait to share them with you. Just in time for Mother's day, a great gift for my fellow bag-obsessed mommas!
Net Effect Traders is a brand new, Californian company that believes in empowering women. By providing quality training, exception work conditions, and good wage jobs to the disinfranchised women of Cambodia, they are helping transforn lives! Each one of their bags and totes is made by one of these lovely ladies who have lead difficult lives due to economical and pysical struggles. When you carry one of their unique purses, you carry a sense of unitiy of women around the world.
"Give a woman good training, a supportive work environment, fair wages and the opportunity to build her own self-confidence and economic freedom and watch her soar. Watch her make powerful and positive decisions for herself and her family and create bright futures never dreamed possible."
Net Effect is also committed to being green and zero waste. The textiles used are created with remnants and reject materials from fishing, agricultural, and construction industries. The result is a plastic polymer that is strong, flexible and beautiful!
Here's a few of my favorites, each bag is available in a variety of colors:
The Net Effect collection of bags and totes make a perfect gift for the socially responsible momma on-the-go! They come in different shapes and sizes, each extremely practical and fashionable. Net Effect makes a bag that anyone, (not just the ladies!) will wear with pride.
