Founder Yi-Mei Truxes “was inspired to create a line of bags evoking that same nostalgia and perennial style” as her muse: “a woman in a white linen dress crossing a cobblestoned street in New York and on her shoulder swung a perfect, woven basket bag.” After discovering artisans in Bali who specialized in weaving, Truxes created Bembien, where she says, “At the forefront of our work is our support of these precious weaving communities. It is our goal to help bring their craft into a wider market on the other side of the globe. 10% of all Bembien proceeds go back into their local community in partnership with the nonprofit Nest.”
