As designer Lee J. Brenner traveled the world, he became increasingly interested in the handmade crafts and designs he saw in various countries. During one such day in Hanoi, it occurred to him that he could make these native creations available to American shoppers. In 2001, he launched l.j. bamboo, a collection of lifestyle bags made by global artisans using one of the world’s most universal materials: bamboo. The bags are made strictly in family-owned and operated workshops, and in that spirit, appeal to the needs of parents—the colorful and printed messenger-style bags are equipped with plenty of compartments, making them ideal for use as stroller totes, diaper bags, and carrying cases for mothers of Matryoshka dolls.
In addition to a focus on fashion and function, l.j. bamboo’s philosophy also stresses philanthropy. The company donates a portion of each purchase to foundations for underprivileged mothers, such as the White Ribbon Alliance, which aims to ensure safe pregnancy and childbirth for women around the world.
