How It's Made: The Apolis Market Tote

What if you could do good for others while also getting your shopping fix? It's not just a fantasy! Let us introduce you to Apolis, the brand behind our covetable Saratoga Springs market totes.

Who founded Apolis and what was their inspiration?

Apolis was founded by brothers Raan and Shea Parton in 2004 with a mission to harness the power of business to create social change. They saw the fashion and textile industry as the perfect 'in' to do just that.

According to Apolis' website, every market bag is handcrafted in Bangladesh by hundreds of mothers who receive Fair Trade-certified wages, annual profit dividends, and a retirement fund. The bags are then shipped to Los Angeles, California, where a growing team of 13 people print one-of-a-kind customizations onto the bag.
