On December 26, 2004, one of the deadliest tsunami in history struck Indonesia, killing over 285,000 and ruining the lives of so many more. Survivors were left jobless, homeless and devastated. Years later – many of them still are. Roy and Louise van Broekhuizen launched Laga Handbags to help the people of Indonesia rebuild their lives by selling their hand-made handbags. The attention to detail is astounding, and I truly believe that you will love their products!
We are dedicated to providing a secure future for as many victims of disaster as possible. With your help, we will achieve that goal. When you order a Laga handbag, know that you are helping create a better and brighter future, and that you can make a difference. We formed Laga Designs International, Inc. to provide income for those who lost their livelihood, but what transpired is much, much more: we developed a personal relationship with the people of Aceh, and we left our hearts in their homes.
