Net Effects Traders is a small emerging company with a big dream. Our commitment is to provide training, fair wage jobs and great working conditions to disenfranchised Cambodians - especially women and mothers. At the same time we are committed to bring fabulous, meticulously designed eco-friendly messenger bags and totes to thoughtful on-the-go Western consumers. Our story is simple -- After living and working for a major non-profit in some of the most disadvantaged neighborhoods in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, and seeing how the women, men, and children were trapped in poverty. And how so many end up begging or scavenging in the streets just to get by we realized:
So, we became advocates for Trade Instead of Aid. And Net Effects Traders was born. Committed to bringing stylish, high quality impeccably designed products to the US meant we needed a design and production team that could meet the demands of Western consumers. And we found the perfect partner in Peace Handicraft of Phnom Penh. Peace Handicraft is a talented and experienced Cambodian company and that has been training and providing fair wage jobs to polio and landmine survivors, hearing impaired and impoverished moms for over a decade. Peace Handicraft shares our commitment to the people of Cambodia and our commitment to great design and quality bags and totes. And now we are introducing our exclusive “Easy Breezy Messenger bag” to the Kula Community. And we invite you to partner with us to change lives!! We cannot make this dream come true without your partnership. Designed especially with busy professionals, students, on-the-go moms and travelers and commuters in mind... …The “Easy Breezy Messenger bag” is a bag for everybody all the time. With all the features to make your life simple, easy and portable.
Committed to sustainable futures we repurpose industrial net remnants so you can rest easy that your purchase is eco-friendly and zero waste. Our unique net fabric means the Easy Breezy is water resistant, durable and can go anywhere anytime. And the Easy Breezy is free of lead, toxins or hazardous dyes. And don’t forget a portion of the profits from all sales are donated to “Nothing but Nets” to help protect impoverished families around the globe from mosquito-born diseases like Malaria and Zika. We are thrilled to partner with Kula Brand and want to share with you the fun of having a messenger bag you love to carry and the joy of knowing you are making a difference.
