Since 2021, we have sourced the recycled and organic cotton fabric for our signature striped lining from Dibella India. Since this lining is inside every O My Bag, we can safely say that cotton is our second most important material. Together with Dibella’s staff we visited all production steps of our cotton in the South of India, following the whole way from field to fabric.
It's that beautiful time of the year when we celebrate Pride, the LGBTQIA+ community, and ourselves. But sometimes, amongst confetti and rainbow flags, we forget what’s really important about this month. Learn through this blog how we, at O My Bag, celebrate Pride by giving to the Indian LGBTQ+ community.
Every year we publish a sustainability report based on the year prior. This year we chose to release our Sustainability Report during Fashion Revolution Week, as this is a time to highlight the challenges in the sustainable fashion industry. We are proud to share our wins and hurdles to everyone interested in our journey.
Every year, we offset 100% of our emissions. But as the climate crisis continues to grow upon us, offsetting alone is not enough anymore. Like every other company, we need to focus on decreasing our footprint internally. This is why we believe carbon insetting is the way forward.
In the summer of 2019 we started our application to become B Corp Certified. Becoming a B Corp is not easy, the application process involves many steps and a thorough company assessment. It has been a long journey, but we can proudly say we made it to the finish line! Joining the big leagues of sustainable fashion, we are excited to continue on our mission; changing the world, one bag at a time. 
Hooray! Here's our 2020 Sustainability Report. It aims at providing more detailed insights into our impact as a company and reflects on our business practices, as well as our social and sustainable achievements.
