About Banda Bags

Banda Bags are our kind of people. Their artisan accessories collection features a wide range of ethically produced products — mostly handcrafted vegan handbags. But what a glorious range of weekender bags, nano handbags, totes, cross-body bags, clutches and wallets. Truly a sight to behold. Each Banda Bag is a work of art.

Since all Banda Bags are handmade, they are all unique and special in their own way. This is because Banda Bags are made using a combination of hand-embroidery and paddle wheel sewing techniques. These techniques help to maintain the integrity of a traditional art form, while also keeping the production process sustainable.

Mass-factory production often lacks character in both the creation and sustainability of the products. Banda Bags are made using artisan techniques that ensure each bag is unique and sustainably produced.

The short version: yes!

The long version: When it comes to fashion, there are two competing philosophies. The first is what can be called "fast fashion." This approach focuses on churning out new styles quickly and cheaply. The result is a constant stream of new clothes, but often at the expense of quality or sustainability. The second philosophy is what could be called "slow fashion." Slow fashion appeals to Banda Bags because it takes a more sustainable approach, focused on creating well-made pieces that will last for years. Slow fashion also tends to be more expensive, but the trade-off is a closet full of clothes that you love and can wear for years to come.

Banda Bags falls squarely in the slow fashion camp. They believe in making beautiful bags that will stand the test of time. And because Banda Bags use vegan materials, their cruelty-free handbags have a smaller carbon footprint than leather bags.

Factory farming is one of the biggest sources of environmental devastation, so by using animal-free fabrics, Banda Bags are doing their part to help keep the planet clean. Plus, they know that animals raised for their skin often suffer from cruel practices like castration, branding, and tail-docking. So by using vegan materials, Banda Bags can help spare animals from this suffering. So when you choose Banda Bags, you're not just getting a stylish and sustainable piece of slow fashion magic - you're helping to make the world a better (and safer) place for animals, too.

It all has to do with the intricate embroidery that covers each bag. The tightly woven threads create a type of fabric that is much lighter than leather, yet just as durable. Which makes Banda Bags ideal for travel. You can pack their mini weekender bags or nano handbag to the brim without worrying about tearing. Unless you're carrying around enormous crystals, which may fit in the bags but are definitely too heavy... for most bags, really. If you're looking for a beautiful and functional travel bag, on the other hand, then look no further. Banda Bags hand embroidery is deliciously ornate for such a sturdy travel companion.

Yes! Banda Bags is a 100% cruelty-free, sustainable and artisan accessories collection. Committed to offering their talented global network of artisans greater economic opportunities, employment and a fair wage.

More than a fashion accessory - Banda Bags are a statement. Known for their fresh, bold colors and intricate embroidered details, they offer a stylish way to show the world you care — about the environment, animal welfare, and supporting artisanal communities.

When you buy Banda Bags mini weekender bags or nano handbags, you are voting with your wallet for a better world. Something beautiful. Something that is making a difference.

Absolutely. All the reviews you see on our site are from real people — and they're not all 5 stars! Banda Bags is an exception to so many rules. The reviews are just one of them. People keep giving Banda Bags such glowing reviews because they're works of art. Plain and simple but not at all — every Banda Bag is richly embroidered in such intricate patterns (via Indonesia) and... sigh... we fell in love, just like everyone else.

At Wanderlost & Found, we treasure hunt for the best quality fair trade and direct trade products. We've been working with ethical brands for years and have had the chance to work with several 3rd party production partners. So when we came across Banda Bags, we were skeptical at first. But after looking into their company, we can assure you that the reviews are all genuine.

People love Banda Bags because they're one of a kind works of art. They're lightweight but sturdy, and the embroidery is lovingly done by hand in Sumatran workshops by women who Banda Bags work with directly to empower them.

In a world full of fakes, fast fashion, and greenwashing nonsense, Banda Bags feel like a bright and rainbow colored tonic in comparison. All the reviews are from people just like you who know treasure when they see it. We felt the same way... so if you're on the fence about buying a Banda Bag for yourself, don't be! They're worth every penny.

We hope to ship Banda Bags outside the United States one day. At this stage, it's not possible for us to offer free shipping internationally. So the United States is as far as our Banda Bags reach... for now.

In today's fashionable world, fast and cheap seems to dominate. But have you considered the people who make all the fast fashion bags you see hovering around in the ether? And if you are paying so little for an item, what do you think the artisans making them earn? At Banda Bags, they believe everyone deserves the right for fair pay, fair trade and fair labor practices. Just like we do.

Currently, Banda Bags use a recycled nylon (RPET) material for the outer material. Their goal is to use waste-plastic thread for the embroidery, with organic cotton, hemp or canvas for the interior lining.

Banda Bags are always looking for more sustainable materials and ways to reduce our carbon footprint. So when you purchase a Banda Bag, you are supporting a company working to be as sustainable as possible!
