PlanetShoes.com, a lifestyle retailer committed to helping people live healthier, more eco-friendly lives, is pleased to include Ethnotek bags in their unique assortment of backpacks and bags. Made up of a small group of creative people with the mission of spreading cultural appreciation and awareness, Ethnotek is designed to bring culture and functionality to our busy everyday lives.
In bringing cultural awareness to the world of bags, Ethnotek is also able to help communities around the world by purchasing textiles made by talented artisans in a diverse array of small villages. “PlanetShoes is proud to carry a brand committed to bringing awareness to the cultural richness present around the world that we sometimes miss in our busy lives,” said Phil Meynard, President of Planet, Inc. “They are revitalizing an industry of artisans that had previously been continuously phased out by large textile businesses.”
PlanetShoes.com is carrying a variety of women’s, men’s and kid’s Ethnotek in a range of colors and styles.
Ethnotek’s mission to celebrate cultural differences more often is evident in their use of worldwide artisans and textiles. From New York City to the tribes of the Yunnan Province, the cultural richness present in our world is diverse and often uncelebrated. Each Ethnotek bag can be customized via the removable front panel called a THREAD. These THREADs are created from handmade textile sourced in person from artisans and villages around the world. Ethnotek has scoured the globe to find the most interesting and sustainable textiles from the most unique of communities to bring style and diversity into their bags and packs.
