The bag company, Kayu, has taken their vegan bags to a whole new level. The name Kayu comes from the Malay word for wood and stays true to the owner’s island roots. The company itself hires and uses workers from her home country in order to create the bags and to provide a living wage to women. These women are able to stay at home with their children and also support their children with a living wage. The new bags are great for dinner and lunch outings alike.
- Kayu is a unique bag brand that carries totes and clutches embellished with stone clasps, crystals, and other sweet designer finishes.
- Recently, Kayu has released some vegan styles that are making us drool. The new collection features bags with wood handles, velvety textures, and bucket styles.
- In addition to being eco-friendly, the new line is crafted entirely by women in Malaysia, the Philippines, and Indonesia, using their indigenous traditions and providing them with an income source.
“You could say Kayu is a bit of a feminist brand: it’s comprised of an all woman team, each member of which is passionate about ensuring that everyone working at Kayu has the right to develop to her fullest potential and earn a living wage.”
