Looking for a nice sustainable leather bags? Well, than it’s time to introduce you to a new sustainable beauty: The BomBom bag from Moi Moi!
Moi Moi Profile
Moi Moi is a a sustainable leather bags brand from Helsinki. They design their bags with thought for day-to-day use, keeping it clean and minimal. Traditional and artisanal craftsmanship and high quality materials are key. These beauties are produced locally. Moi Moi supports small companies (like themselves) and pay fair salaries for their products and production. They promise you can use these sustainable bags for a long period of time and over the years they will age beautifully, making each one of them unique. And I must say if you feel the quality you understand why! The Leather is quite sturdy, and feels strong and of great quality. Can’t wait to see how it will age over time!
Why Vegetal Tanned Leather?
Moi Moi is sustainable in their core. Besides making use of local artisans (EU) to make their supply chain more transparent, they make use of vegetal tanned leather. This means that the dye they use is “chromium-free”, and does not contain harmful chemicals. Did you know that Chrome tanning, the most often used technique for dyeing leather, is very harmful. It’s not only harmful for the environment but also for the human health! Why did they ever came up with this? [I guess this is a whole other topic.]
With Vegetal tanned leather your safe! Vegetal Tanned Leather is made of tannic acids naturally found in plant species. This could be from branches, leaves and fruits. What more could we ask for. 🙂
The Bom Bom Handbag
BOMBOM is a round handbag, which you can wear in multiple ways, how sustainable! It has two different length straps which makes it a fun style, and super versatile. You can use it as a messenger across your body or carry it in the hand. The longer strap is adjustable and detachable, that’s why I also like to wear it wrapped around my body! [See image below.] The Bom Bom bag is the best because it forces you to only take essential items with you. When I use the bag, it fits my small vegetal tanned leather wallet, my Dick Moby Sunglasses and my precious phone. It comes in brown, as you can see on the images. It also comes in black, if you’re the cooler type. Or choose one of their other sustainable leather bags for you, or, if you need a nice gift for your boy..
