The Stars of Stripes


With an outfit and an accessory to suit every adventure, Apolis are dedicated to equipping socially conscious shoppers with products that empower. These new Striped Simple Totes are part of the Californian company’s first 100% vegan collection, handmade from sturdy golden jute and handprinted by members of a fair trade co-op in Bangladesh. Apolis’ partnership with Saidpur Enterprises and their expert artisans is one of the brand’s biggest success stories, helping to provide steady employment for more than 75 local workers. You can read more about Apolis’ advocacy and their business-smart philosophy, as told to us by one of the brothers behind the brand, Shea Parton, in the Spring issue of Peppermint. Available in a stripy palette perfect for an Australian summer, you can bag-up your own tote online or through Apolis stockists.
