Bandits & Darlings is for people who truly value authenticity and look for an alternative to mass production.

Fairtrade to us is really fair trade.

The country of origin does not necessarily need to be a developing country. The production process – from leather to bag – may involve up to 10 families, directly or indirectly. These people are true craftsmen who have been working with the materials for generations. In the Netherlands, Bandits & Darlings is a one-man business, but I am definitely not alone. The people in the workplace in Morocco and I form a team, and we have daily contacts. During the time of our cooperation we developed an honest friendship. To conclude, buying a bag at Bandits & Darlings is more than just buying any bag. It is a contribution to the bigger picture.

Buying a bag at Bandits & Darlings completes the positive circle.
