MYOMY is called do good for a reason. Since their first MY PAPER BAG in 2007 the Dutch brand empowers artisans by paying them a fair income, giving acces to a healthcare system and offering a safe working environment.
Sustainable Design

2007, Marja Baas founded MYOMY do goods. Since then the Dutch brand fuses casual and chic into sustainable leather design bags and accessories. Fairtrade collections inspired by recognisable items from our daily lives and designed with a mission to do good.

Their first icon was MY PAPER BAG – The sustainable alternative for the famous and street-wise paper bag. This was just the beginning of their positive journey around the world. Ever since, they’re combining the quality of sustainable materials with the uniqueness of iconic design.

Each MYOMY designer bag is created with care by talented designers, crafted with love by Indian and Dutch artisans and worn with pride by men and women around the world. Each with their own unique story, all with the same dream to make and wear beautiful products whilst contributing to a better world.

Empowering Artisans

Myomy values long term relationships with their fair trade production partners. With the sales of MYOMY and their support they are able to ensure a fair income, acceptable working times, safe working conditions and access to training and personal development for artisans. This gives people the freedom and self-confidence to make their own choices in life and be an example for next generations.

This happens in close collaboration with their three producers: Craft Resource Center in India, I-did in the Netherlands and Leatherina in Bangladesh.

MYOMY carefully selects the materials used for the collection. For example, all the leather used for production in India is Leather Working Group certified ensuring environmental compliance of leather manufacturers.

Other environmental aspects are taken into account as well, including waste and energy by asking their partners to recycle their waste at the different stages of the production process and to make use of natural drying and sunlight to reduce our energy footprint.
