One of our favorite feel good brands, Apolis, is now offering its’ fans the capability to customize the popular Market Bag.
The Market Bag was previously introduced as part of the City Series Collection, which showcased over 50 notable cities from around the world. Over the past four years, Apolis has added new cities upon consumer request, creating a high demand for select locations. Apolis has since expanded the collection to over 221 cities, with over 121,049 market bags produced to date.
In response to that demand, the lifestyle brand has now launched the Customizable Market Bag, which allows consumers to tailor one of the brand’s best-selling items for the purpose of gifting or personalization. Co-founder Shea Parton explained that, “Over the past four years, it’s been so rewarding to see how people love to celebrate their neighborhood with our City Market Bags. Every time we added a new neighborhood, city, or country to the roster, people responded. We will continue to support our favorite retailers to sell the bag locally, but we thought it is only fair that we offer a customizable Market Bag program that will allow everyone to proudly represent their roots–whatever they are.”
Priced at $68, each bag is handmade in Bangladesh from sustainable natural jute fiber with a waterproof inner lining and natural vegetable-tanned leather straps reinforced with antique nickel rivets. Create your own custom Market Bag by entering up to three lines of text to be hand–printed on one of their bags. As co-founder Raan Parton told us, “The best part is that these re-usable bags have provided a Fair Trade wage, job security and benefits for the all-women co-op in Bangladesh that handcrafts each market bag and have kept an untold amount of single use bags out of landfills.”
