Inspired by a stylish New Yorker with a woven basket bag on her shoulder, who looked as though she’d stepped out of 1970s coastal France, Yi-Mei Truxes left her job at Vogue — apparently those folks know a thing or two about fashion — to found Brooklyn-based Bembien, selling basket bags woven in Bali.

Brilliant.

Yi-Mei’s bags are handwoven by a small village of artisan weavers in Bali and 10% of all Bembien proceeds go back into the local community. With the bags evoking a sense of nostalgia and perennial style, Bembien is proud to bring traditional weaving techniques halfway across the globe.
