Based in Cambodia, Smateria defies convention by using unusual and recycled materials whenever possible to craft innovative and fashionable, Italian designed bags and accessories. Their unique materials include fishing and construction netting, upcycled vegan leather, luxe leather scraps from a leather furniture factory, and recycled plastic bags. The result is a water resistant, virtually indestructible, cool and unique line of bags and accessories. That’s not all that’s sustainable. Priority is given to the employment of women and mothers and an onsite preschool and daycare facility is there for their children. They enjoy sustainable livelihoods, healthcare, professional development and more.
