A Sustainable Vision - What are our values?
BOH became what it is today as the result of me trying to be a more mindful about what I buy & use, where it comes from and what effect it will have on our beautiful planet! As more and more of us are having a conscious shift to lead more sustainable lifestyles, fast fashion is no longer the only option and affordable alternatives are becoming much more accessible!
It's important to me to be as transparent as possible with the process of the bags! Ever since the beginning of BOH, sustainability and ethical practices have been core aspects of the business, and I take care at every stage of production to ensure it!
All fabrics used reflect these standards. The embroidery is made in Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand, and is completely fair-trade, you can read more about that in the 'Embroidery Story' section! I use 2 organic black cottons, certified by GOTS, to make up the shell and linings of the bags.
I source and re-purpose beautiful buttery soft black leather from various places; fabric recyclers, yacht upholsters and off-cuts from businesses. The labels and promotional material, such as business cards and info cards, are all locally sourced.
Each and every bag is carefully hand-crafted to order.
