Josie's Purse Camel

The Brand Story

O My Bag are a dutch brand started by Paulien Wesselink. Paulien wanted to set up a social enterprise that would not only become profitable, but also give back by approaching business in a fair, sustainable manner.


Every O My Bag is created with love in Kolkata, India, in a safe and positive atmosphere: fair wages are paid, benefits are provided for, education and training are offered, and women and minorities are given equal-work opportunities. 


As O My Bag has grown their suppliers, tanners and manufacturers have grown with them. By choosing to work with carefully selected producers in India, O My Bag contributes to global issues like fighting poverty and encouraging the empowerment of women.

All the factories O My Bag works with are SA8000 certified to ensure that they operate under fair conditions, and EMA is a guaranteed member of the World Fair Trade Organization. In some of these factories they have access to healthcare and social benefits, such as retirement funds, free lunch, maternity leave and more.

Eco-friendly tanned leather is currently the most sustainable option to produce bags that can be used for a lifetime. Hides and skins are a by-product of the meat and dairy industry.


These leathers are tanned without the use of harmful chemicals, like chromium, heavy metals, formaldehyde, short-chain chlorinated paraffin, volatile organic compounds or alkyl phenol ethoxylates. To verify this, the leather is tested by independent laboratories. Instead of harmful substances, vegetable tannins are used in the tanning process.

O My Bag are looking to further their positive impact by promoting higher wages in their supply chain.

Sustainable Eco-Leather


We recommend you treat your O My Bag with a weather-proofing spray every 2-4 weeks, more often for light-coloured products and less for medium-dark tones. This helps to repel moisture and give your bag a longer life. We also advise you to moisturise your leather O My Bag every 3 months. Moisturising will help to reduce scratches and ensure the leather will not dry out over time.


Avoid: Hand sanitisers contain alcohol, which may remove the colour and causes damage to the finish on your lovely leather bag or accessory.
