10 Year Anniversary
Ten years ago, Paulien had the dream to change the world, one bag at a time. Eleven collections later, and with some very exciting things to come, we’re taking a moment to look back on where it all started.
So, here we are, 10 years later, doing what we love: changing the world, one bag at a time. But we couldn’t have done it on our own, so we wanted to celebrate those who are part of the O My Bag Story. Read Paulien’s letter to see where it all started!
Here we are, eleven collections later, and many more to come, but you never forget your first time. We look over O My Bag's 'firsts' over the past 10 years. From Paulien’s very first trip to India, to opening our first store and now, celebrating our 10 year anniversary.
At O My Bag we continue to innovate on the materials we use, and over the past few years, we’ve been working to find a durable and low impact leather alternative. In 2020 we came across apple leather, and for the first time, Apple Leather will debut in our FW21 collection. A vegan alternative made from residual apple waste, we could not be more excited!
10 years of O My Bag
Every year 1% of O My Bag’s revenue directly contributes to the development of social projects in India. Over the past 10 years O My Bag has been able to provide 785 fairly paid jobs and positively impact 7630 lives.
O My Bag is 100% carbon neutral, we avoid harmful chemicals in the tanning process and we are continuously improving our material use to decrease our environmental footprint.
O My Bags have found homes in over 45 countries around the world. This means we can continue to share our story and educate stakeholders around the globe on both social impact and sustainable practices.
The O My Bag Team
It’s fair to say that without the help and support of those around us, O My Bag wouldn’t be where we are today. So here’s to the wonderfully dedicated and hardworking team behind O My Bag.
Thank you for supporting us.
