I’ve always believed that you can tell a lot about a brand through their packaging. Typically it’s that last step AFTER someone has already purchased something. When you see a brand with nice packaging, I believe that it shows the passion, commitment to quality, and a desire to develop a long term connection with the customer. That’s why I have made a point to use, not only ADORABLE packaging, but also packaging that is fair trade and sustainable. Christiana Layman Designs has paired up with Distant Village Packaging, an award-winning sustainable design firm that produces handmade packaging from natural materials. They work with remote villages around the world to create jobs for talented artisans who believe sustainability and innovative design can co-exist. These beautiful natural open weave sinamay mesh totes are made from 100% natural plant fiber. Sinamay is woven from the processed stalks of the abaca tree, a banana palm that is native to the Philippines. The natural stringy fibers of the banana plant are woven to make an all natural fiber fabric used to create these unique totes. They are reusable, and lightweight yet durable. They are eco-friendly products, and are made by artisans in remote villages around the world - creating jobs and fair wages for hard working communities. When you purchase a Christiana Layman Designs, you are supporting a business that is dedicated to quality and sustainability from beginning to end.
