Where do our products come from?

The majority of our products are handmade from skilled Artisans in remote village communities. The female Artisans come from South-East Asia, in economically disadvantaged hill tribe communities. Many of the Artisans come from the Hmong, Karen and Aka communities. All levels of Sandy Days bag production are environmentally friendly and promote safe working conditions. Our Artisans are paid a living wage so they are able to stay in their villages and provide for their families and putting their children through schooling. Many of the products are made with organic hemp, cotton and canvas. Our products are produced with sustainability in mind. We endeavor to be as environmentally friendly as possible. 

We also have Balinese Artisans who hand make some of our beautiful products. They are paid a high premium for their products they produce. We believe in supporting local Artisans and will always endeavor to do so. The nature of handmade goods means each product has slight variations and there are no two made exactly the same. 

We also have a small range of boutique suppliers who design their products and hand make them. These suppliers come from Europe. Asia and the USA. We believe in fair pay, human rights and equal opportunities.
