We've long been fans of Apolis bags. The Certified B Corporation brand ticks all our boxes: stylish goods + a focus on sustainability + creating positive social change. Learn more about this amazing company here.
We jumped at the chance to design some custom bags with their team, bringing two unique styles to our corner of Indiana. One lets us proudly shout our love for the fantastic city of Fort Wayne, while the other speaks to our passion for the whole Midwest region. We gladly call Fort Wayne home, but we also adore bouncing around between the beauty, excitement and unique offerings of our neighboring states.
So which will you choose? The long handled tote featuring richly-hued vegetable tanned leather straps? Or the short handled market bag with natural leather straps? No matter which you choose, each bag can carry over 100 lbs and has a water-resistant interior that's easy to clean. What's more, each Apolis purchase helps to break a cycle of poverty by providing jobs to women in developing areas with Fair Trade wages, annual profit dividends as well as a retirement fund. Your answer just might be both.
