OMB celebrates International Women’s Day by advocating for greater transparency and accountability in the fashion industry. As a first step, we’re committed to empowering women at every stage in our own supply chain. And this time around, we’d like to share with you how our Woven Leather is impacting women in India.

In October 2021, we launched our very first AppleSkin™ collection. Innovating with sustainable materials for new collections is something we love to do. Although we already knew AppleSkin™  was a perfect match with our sustainability values, due to COVID we had not visited our producing facility in Italy. Luckily, last month our Production Manager Jessica and Store Manager Giulia visited Mabel factory and we were able to see the production with our own eyes. 

We sat down with our Production Manager Jessica, and asked all your burning questions relating to our production process, from how COVID has impacted the process to her personal relationship with our suppliers in India.
Today, on the 8th of March, we are celebrating International Women’s Day! And is there a better way to celebrate by recognising the strong and courageous women who tirelessly run O My Bag? Read more to learn about amazing Women behind your O My Bag!
The world stands still and holds its breath in light of the current situation induced by COVID-19. At O My Bag we are not only worried about our family and friends, but also about our partners and friends - our extended O My Bag family - in India.
O My Bag has been supporting the Brickfield Schools, a project of the Kolkata Mary Ward Social Center (KMWSC), for a few years now. It is a project very dear to our hearts. Due to the current health crisis we wanted to make sure the workers and their families were supported during these uncertain times. We reached out to KMWSC to see how O My Bag could help.
Fashion Revolution week is back for 2020. Transparency is at the heart of this not-for-profit organization and in support we want to celebrate our amazing workers behind the bag. Plus, read all about our Special Pre-Loved Sale to help our extended family in India during these difficult times.
Who run the world? Girls! Yes - we already know that, but as it’s International Women’s Day we want to shine a light on some power women dear to our hearts: The ladies who make our dust bags. Plus, we'll give you 4 tips to get the most out of your own dust bag.

We believe Fashion Revolution Week is a moment to celebrate the women – both the wearers and the makers. We’ve put together a list of brands we love that actively empower female workers and create beautiful fashion. These businesses employ, support, and help vulnerable women across the world and their female-led initiatives are sure to inspire you.
Our production trip has been an eye-opening experience for me (Indra). This was my first time in India ever and I am very grateful that I had the opportunity to join Jess. Looking back, it has been even more impressive than I imagined beforehand.
During this week we want you to stand up against the fast fashion brands that are exploiting labour and natural resources.
On this post we talk a bit about the day we visited the Brickfield Schools, a social project that we support in India, that provides school lessons to children of migrant workers on the Brickfields (steenfabrieken). Keep reading to see how they liked our gifts!
