Each t-shirt is stunningly unique and its handmade production is ONE-OF-A-KIND so every design may vary slightly. Please select your size and you will be sent a shirt according to the size.

empowering women

When women are empowered, communities thrive! We support girls who want to learn a trade...women who don’t want to settle for an arranged marriage...moms who want to be able to work from home…retirees who don’t want to labor outdoors anymore…aspiring fashion designers who want to showcase their talent to the world.

SUSTAINABILITY

We feel it is our duty to leave the lightest footprint possible. We are committed to sourcing more sustainable materials in our production process. Currently we use a recycled nylon (RPET) material for the outer material. Our goal is to use waste-plastic thread for the embroidery with organic cotton, hemp or canvas for the interior lining.

FAIR TRADE FAIR PAY

In today’s fashionable world, fast and cheap seems to dominate. But have you considered the people who make the bags? What do you think they earn if you are paying so little for an item? That is not the narrative here at Banda Bags. Everyone deserves the right for fair pay, fair trade and fair labor practices.

LIGHTWEIGHT

Our bags are handcrafted with extremely lightweight materials, much lighter than leather, yet hold the same durability due to their intricate embroidery. This is one of the reasons Banda Bags are the perfect travel bags.

Handcrafted by Artisans

All of these women want to live a better life. We all deserve that right. It is my mission to support these wonderful women and your support helps!

FAQS

  • How are Banda Bags produced?

    Banda Bags are uniquely handcrafted using a combination of hand-embroidery and paddle wheel sewing. We pride ourselves on these techniques as they maintain the integrity of a traditional art form in Indonesia in addition to the abstinence of mass-factory production. Mass-factory production not only lacks character in the creation, but in certain countries it has been the source of environmental irresponsibility as well as human right's abuse.

    Please be advised that given the handcrafted nature of our collections, along with the remote location and access to materials, there may be subtle differences in each Banda Bag...but again, we believe that makes Banda Bags even more special and unique!

  • Why are Banda Bags Vegan/Cruelty-Free?

    Animal-free fabrics have a smaller carbon footprint than materials (such as leather) requiring factory farming - a practice that often results in the increase of environmental devastation. As well as being "greener" than leather, vegan materials also spare animals castration, branding, tail-docking and other practices deemed cruel. Banda Bags is committed to maintaining a smaller carbon footprint as well as keeping animals safe!

  • What is the size difference between the Weekender Bag and the Mini Weekender Bag?

    · The Weekender Bag dimensions are: 20 in Long x 10 in Wide x 13 in High / 50 cm L x 25 cm W x 33 cm H.

    · The Mini Weekender Bag dimensions are: 15.5 in Long x 9 in Wide x 9.5 in High / 39.5 cm L x 23 cm W x 24 cm.

    But unless you have a ruler in your hands, this might not mean diddly to you. So here's how we differentiate:

    · The Weekender Bag will fit several outfits and toiletries for a weekend getaway! It also is the exact maximum size approved for carry-on baggage on a plane.

    · The Mini Weekender Bag will fit a change of small clothes for your barre or yoga class. Or, if you are like to carry a big everyday bag to fit your iPad, makeup case, etc. this bag will satisfy your needs.

  • How do I care for my Banda Bag?

    If you receive any stain or mark on your bag, simply dampen a cloth and lightly rub the area as to take care of the fine embroidery.

  • Do I have to pay duty/taxes for shipping?

    Generally speaking, NO. The amount of a Banda Bags purchase is usually lower than the minimum taxable amount. However, each duty/tax situation is unique to the country's customs laws. In the case that customs requires duty/taxes to be paid, it is the responsibility of the customer. If a customer refuses to pay duties and the item is returned, the return shipping fee will be deducted from the purchase. 

  • How long is the delivery time?

    Delivery time vary from 3 to 8 business days depending on your location.
