Yay i finally got myself a Borneo Chic bag, after lusting for one ever since I attended their store launch! Though its not the cheapest, it is for a good cause, the Craft Kalimantan Network supports indigenous crafts from 6 areas in Kalimantan. The Borneo Chic brand uses these traditional weaves & creates fashionable modern bags. The products are the work of artisan groups, 90% of whom are women living in and around forests. Through Borneo Chic they are paid fair prices for their woven products, which allow them to continue their tribes weaving traditions.
So I promised myself I would get myself a Borneo Chic bag at a discounted price during their YEAR END SALE which is until this Saturday, December 15.
Here’s a pic of my bag. I love that though it’s ethnic, its still chic and uber modern – something I can use in the city. What do you think? I like to think of this purchase as responsible shopping hehe.
You still have chance to get a Borneo Chic bag at a great deal in the next 2 days. Discounts range from 30 – 70% off but I think yesterday’s early birds raided most of the 70% offers since there was very few when I went this afternoon.
