Designer Spotlight: The Advocacy Impact of Apolis

It took little time for us to start noticing a familiar little tote being sold by our favorite shops. Unionmade was one, FrenchTrotters another…we just had to find the origin of the Market Bag that we were seeing everywhere, and sure enough, Apolis was the answer!

Teaming up with many tré chic vendors to create customized branding made this bag, manufactured by an ethical female-employed shop in Bangladesh, so popular. But what we really wanted to make note of was Apolis’ Advocacy Impact Projects as a whole, which gave the green light to the design and production of a selection of fashion accessories made specifically to support an industry in need in locations such as Uganda, Nepal, and Bangladesh.

Needless to say, we hope this kind of global activism serves as a role model for all kinds of industries.
