we chose the name bon because it's French for good. our style is influenced by that beautiful, nonchalant ‘jeans, tee, heels’ Parisienne; and our business ethos is grounded in goodness - so bon was the perfect blend of our inspiration and ethos. We‘re totally driven by being good to people and the environment, the creation of good outfits, good design and good quality.
So when we met Jeff from Liminal Apparel in NZ we knew we'd found a kindred spirit. Jeff works with Freeset in India, an organisation dedicated to helping women escape the Kolkata Sex Trade. With Jeff's help, and the considerable skills of Freeset's all female cutters, printers seamstresses and finishers, we created our very own bon Tote bag.
We're incredibly proud and humbled to have worked with these great people - and the end result is a completely organic, ethical, comfortable, chic and really practical tote bag - it accompanies me to the studio everyday with my laptop and too much other 'important' stuff to list. We're pretty stoked with our tote bag - it's been a win win win win!
