Flying Fox Fabrics makes these bags in partnership with social enterprises in Cambodia. The Serena bags are made by Kravan House.

Kravan House trains, employs and supports disabled artisans and has been doing so since 2003 when founder Thanan Hok founded it.

Please note that each bag is unique and the placement of the fabric design is different and wonderful on each item.
