About OrganicBagsCanada

Sales 252
On Etsy since 2012

Located on Vancouver Island, we create basic, reusable items using certified organic fibres and low waste production methods.

Growing up in Vancouver, I learned to sew and harvest vegetables from my mother who was always making everything from scratch. I learned the value in connecting to the earth, being resourceful and spending time crafting things by hand.

After studying design & textile arts and working at a local fabric store, I began designing my own patterns of dresses, bags and decorative accessories for the home, often using up-cycled fabric and natural textiles from plant fibres.

I feel the greatest impact I could make as a designer is to create stylish and useful items that promote compassion & an eco-friendly lifestyle while replacing unnecessary disposable packaging.  All products are made from sustainably sourced, certified organic, plant-based or recycled materials and are designed in my creative studio in BC. Many products are produced by myself and through collaborations with local textile artists.

Welcome to Organic Bags Canada! All items are created sustainably in BC, Canada using eco-friendly, reusable, plant-based and reclaimed fabrics and zero waste practices. Our operation is small, but so is our environmental foot print. We move like the ocean tide, continuously flowing with new designs and products while minimizing outdated methods and streamlining production to eliminate waste. That being said, custom order and branded requests are welcome!

We highly encourage purchasing local, as this reduces packaging waste and carbon emissions from shipping. If you'd like to find our products in a store near you, contact us for a list of current retailers in Canada, USA & UK.

We believe in keeping our landfills manageable and oceans clean, and have introduced a "Closed Loop Policy" to take back all of our products at the end of their life cycle. To read more, scroll down to the bottom in our Additional Policies section
