Haute Totes: Eco-Fashion Enters into a New Phase
Nomi Network’s Fall Collection showcases our ambition to fight slavery with everyday luxuries. Our newest products cater to the consumer culture’s fascination with the latest trends while providing the purchaser with a chance to do some serious good.
There is nothing mediocre about this collection-its charm is in the unabashedly way it transforms recycled rice-paper material into a chic accessory. Finessed with stylish shapes and bold colors, our Fall Line unveils our newest revolution in eco-fashion: luxe quilting. The posh, diamond-shaped pattern gives each bag a designer touch, and elevates cause-based products into extraordinary designs.
Nomi’s Fall Collection offers a multitude of new choices that cater to your lifestyle. Our quilted cross-body bucket bag is large enough to hold a laptop or work portfolio and comfortable enough to navigate you through your daily commute. The mini cross-body purse is a must-have for any season, and conveniently morphs into a clutch. Both bags are splashed with iconic images of fish that are reminiscent of Southeast Asia, where our work is based. Our convertible handbag includes a removable shoulder strap and comes in vibrant, two-tone colors. Our unisex messenger, equipped with an adjustable shoulder strap, front flap with two-buckle closure, and exterior zip pocket, is the new utilitarian carryall. Although this is the only bag in the collection without the textured quilting, each bag’s solid blue exterior is constructed from a different patch of Vietnamese block letters on the recycled rice-paper material, making it a truly one-of-a-kind item. The collection also debuts our laptop sleeves with our plush quilted exterior that provides extra protection for your computer and comes in two sizes that fit a 13’’ or 15’’ Mac and PC, our new colorful collection of cosmetic bags that can also carry art supplies, accessories and other tools, and our clever little flip wallet that is ideal for the minimalist. Every fall bag has a black interior lining with interior zip compartments and extra slip pockets that neatly tuck away your essentials.
Each bag is still made in Cambodia at a facility that provides job opportunities for survivors of sex-trafficking and women at-risk. However, the creative credentials come from New York, where Nomi’s team of volunteers labors obsessively to create the perfect products to meet the everyday needs of fashion-conscious, socially-aware consumers. Our signature label, “Buy Her Bag, Not Her Body” is embedded on every bag as a constant reminder that your purchase helps restore a life. We want our supporters to feel comfortable and confident wearing our products, and we proudly present our brand-new look with the same passion to end sexual slavery.
