Santa Barbara Global Citizen Tote from Apolis

$38.00

We discovered this gorgeous bag on Istagram, last year, not even realizing that the founders of this inspiring business are hometown boys and natives of Montecito! Our Apolis bags have become our go-to bags for shopping the Farmers Market here in Santa Barbara, carrying all the wet, sandy Volleyball essentials to East Beach, and even serve as an everyday handbag. We are thrilled to finally offer the iconic Apolis bag on our site, and in our Old Town, Goleta storefront! 

Please read more about the founders and their mission...

In 2004, brothers, Raan and Shea Parton founded Apolis with a simple idea that business can create social change. Their travels abroad immersed them in personal stories of struggle and survival and inspired them to create a business model that bridges commerce and economic development. Along with their commitment to global advocacy, they also understand the importance of sourcing and manufacturing locally. Whether it means partnering with manufacturers in Uganda, Peru, Bangladesh, or around the corner in Los Angeles, the Partons have used their model of “advocacy through industry” to empower people to determine their own future.

  • Your Long-Lasting Bag: We believe you want a product of enduring quality, so this durable bag is made to last at least 8 years and carry over 100 lbs
  • Your Purchase Helps Break a Poverty Cycle: The mothers who handcraft your bag receive Fair Trade wages, annual profit dividends, and a retirement fund; read Forbes.com's article on how this approach is changing people's lives, with 180,000 bags and counting
  • A Waterproof Carryall: With a waterproof interior that's easy to wipe clean, spills are not a problem — you can literally even use this bag as an ice chest
