Robert Waters Carley Waters POPPY + SAGE Co-Founders

 

POPPY + SAGE is a sustainable fashion brand with a focus on delivering beautiful products from real communities that we have built authentic relationships with.  We are proud to be part of the sustainable fashion world - where the utmost importance is the disruption of an industry that often times has exploited either the environment or the artisans that create the products.  We are a late-20s husband and wife couple who love to travel, and sought to get away from our corporate marketing jobs by selling unique products we find while on our travels. 

We are currently selling highly on-trend rattan, straw, and woven handbags, each of which are handmade on the island of Bali, Indonesia. The women artisans who create our bags are both our friends and partners in our endeavor.  Our POPPY + SAGE bags are truly a work of art - to see the creation process, the level of skill and love that goes into each individual bag is remarkable. At the moment, we see many imitation bags that are from lesser known islands where conditions of the artisans are very unfortunate.  We are proud to give back to the communities who create POPPY + SAGE bags, and create jobs and guarantee an income for them in great conditions.  By purchasing a POPPY + SAGE bag, you are truly making the world a better place for the artisan communities, for the fashion industry, and the environment. 

We are proud to be bringing these beautiful, bohemian products to larger markets, at a very fair price point - and most importantly, to give back to the community who are creating them.  Join us, as we seek to bring you something special and truly artisan handcrafted from our current corner of the world to yours.

Cheers!
