Ms. Bay is not your average luxury handbag brand. We do not only care for the perfect design, top-quality materials and flawless execution.
We care for our common future. Our ideology is one of timeless design, social responsibility and environmental awareness.
Together we shape the world of tomorrow.
Slow fashion is a movement that represents the eco, the ethical, the sustainable fashion which commits to slowing down the rate of fashion consumption. It’s a matter of quality over quantity.
In response to this, we created a slow luxury accessories brand.
Salmon leather is the main material of our collection. Salmon skins are a waste product from the fishing industry. Today, only 1% of all fish skins are recycled. Fish leather is a rescued material that has qualities similar to those of regular leather but can be processed in a more environmental-friendly way. Its strength makes for durable products. Together with a timeless design, fish leather is our ultimate future-proof material.
Following design is manufacturing. Most leather products are made in cheap labour countries like Bangladesh, China and India. Poor working conditions, serious health risks and low pay are only a few of the problems the industry are facing.
We believe in the economic importance of labour-opportunities in these third world countries. Trade can offer local communities the possibility to improve their living conditions. But only if this is based on ethical and social values that are in accordance with basic human rights and needs.
Ms. Bay produces in Kolkata, India. We only collaborate with factories that are in line with our vision and values. All of the factories we work with, are SA8000 standard certified. This means that they qualify for fair trade standards regarding child labour, health and safety, discrimination, remuneration, …
Our skilful craftsmen aren’t anonymous hands sewing away at our designs. They are our colleagues, our partners, our allies.
Together we bring to you the world of Ms. Bay; beautifully slow and real.
