From the Greek for "global citizen," Apolis was founded in 2004 with the guiding principle of creating social change and empowering communities locally and around the world. Apolis partners with manufacturers, artisans and farmers to create well-crafted styles that fuse casual versatility with a clean, workwear-inspired aesthetic.
Here, a resilient, capacious tote handcrafted from natural golden jute puts the brand's commitment to advocacy through industry into action: each piece is produced in collaboration with Saidpur Enterprises, an artisanal co-op that provides fair-wage jobs for Bangladeshi women while contributing to social and educational projects in the community. Vegetable-tanned leather straps, antiqued-nickel rivets and a sturdy waterproof lining provide the perfect finishing touches.
