The History Behind Laga
The triumph of art, hope and resolve have created the most fashionable handbags on the market today. Laga Handbags are a sign that beauty can arise from devastation.
On December 26, 2004, nearly 200,000 Indonesians were killed by a tsunami in Sumatra. The survivors of that disaster, along with founders Roy and Louise Van Borkehuizen, fashioned an industry that produces distinctive, one-of-a kind handbags. Each is individually made with a treadle, powered only by the townsperson operating it. For centuries, the people of Aceh, Sumatra, have been recognized as preeminent artisans of embroidered goods. Laga Handbags combined their traditional motifs and handiwork with modern elegance and durability.
No two Laga Handbags look exactly the same, yet the superlative quality is standard. Each handbag’s embroidery is 100% cotton thread sewn onto a sturdy nylon-polyurethane fabric. The smaller bags are reinforced with nylon, while the larger ones are lined with satin.
The company offers double handles, satchels, shoulder bags and totes. There is a shade for each season and a color for every outfit.
A person with a Laga Handbag is beautiful both inside and out. In addition to providing employment to the victims, the company contributes a portion of every sale to the courageous people of Aceh.
