Amerii was founded by two best friends that also happened to have a passion for handbags. Inspired by the traditional Balinese rattan-style bag, they created their first-ever bag collection that was handcrafted in the heart of Bali where the designs first originated from. Today, amerii sells thousands of quality handcrafted bags to fashion-forward women all over the world while giving back to local communities.
For us at amerii, we are all about blending old traditions with modern-day fashion trends to make our bags beautifully unique. Handcrafted, using traditional techniques and genuine materials, the amerii bag is the opposite of the mass-produced bags that we typically see elsewhere.
We use a direct to consumer online model that allows us to avoid any expensive extra costs, such as paying middlemen and covering storefronts. We buy our bags straight from our talented artisans and sell them directly to you without the excessive price tag.
We have always believed in living consciously. While in Bali we have rediscovered the meaning of the little things, and these are the things that are the most important. We need to cherish these things, because one day, they will become the big things. Our handwoven bags tell different stories, and through them, we want to remind people to appreciate everything in life, especially the moments.
We have partnered with some of the most talented Balinese artisans. We ensure that we purchase our bags from weavers that promote Fair Trade. All of our weavers are fairly compensated, which helps them to continue following their artistic paths and passions while providing for their families.
