Product name: Smateria Ye Ye bag
Making a sustainable choice is all about knowing what’s going on behind-the-scenes, and Cambodian accessory designers Smateria break it down from the get go, dividing their products by recycled material – ‘net’, ‘plastic’ and ‘smoto’ (discarded fabric sourced from the Cambodian motorbike, moto).
Employees are contracted in line with International Labour Laws, and the business has created a platform for young female workers who make up 85 per cent of the workplace and are encouraged to bring their children into work with them, where Smarteria pay for childcare.
The also make fantastic looking products. We love the Ye Ye bag (pictured).
