I'm very excited to have Sapahn back on the blog & just in time for the holidays! If you are looking to give a loved one a great quality handbag which is responsibly-made, I highly suggest looking through their collection. I've started a bit of my own collection with the Aida Bucket from early Spring & now, this stunning number - the Emerald Crossbody! My Aida has gone through a lot {the usual spills and many travels} & it looks as good as new. Therefore, I stand behind the amazing quality and craftsmanship of each piece. 

Sapahn believes the process of creating starts with the people. Sapahn {Thai for bridge} connects the ideas and stories of people and culture bringing more to the meaning of consumption. 

The Emerald Crossbody is made for today's modern woman. It has all the pockets for easy organization, and can fit an iPad or small tablet. You can find this style in 8 different colors, but the Emerald is by my far my favorite - with Red coming in at a close second. I have the holidays on my mind for sure...

This bag is created by Omega Leather which is made up of 22 highly skilled and talented artisans, including Mana and Arpa who have been creating for 20 years. Starting as a small passion, Mana and Arpa have brought together a community of workers who have the same love for creating which goes beyond profits. 

Sapahn is home to several other artisan groups who specialize in jewelry, scarves & leather accessories. Now working with nine artisan communities throughout Thailand, Sapahn empowers almost 500 people! Brooke Mullen, the creator, is in constant contact with the artisans to ensure transparency and fair work for all. To shop their entire collection, click here.
