Who We Are


 Kare Bags is for eco-conscious consumers who are dissatisfied with cheaply made, imported goods and want to support slow, ethically made products that provide sustainable employment.
When you purchase a Kare Bag you support a whole range of other local businesses and individuals.
Our commitment is to ensure that we make plastic-free shopping easy for you by producing original bags that are designed for this purpose. 

We use 100% cotton that is produced at local mills in South Africa.
Our cotton mesh is 100% unbleached cotton yarn, grown in Africa &
manufactured in Cape Town.

In a world of fast fashion where faster & cheaper is valued over the rights of workers we believe that everyone involved in our company should benefit from it.
We have a strong bond with all our machinists and are grateful for all their hard work & talent.
The company would not exist without their skills. 
Guardians of Nature
We want to hand the power back to you the consumer.
You should know that by being more selective over what you buy, you can actually shape, and shift what the market provides.
By refusing plastic & fast fashion you stand up for the planet.
#ShoppingIsVoting we hope you vote for our locally made goodies. 
As you shop with your Kare Bags to actively improve the state of our planet we want you to feel that you are connected to all the human hands involved in making your bag.
We strive to be as transparent as possible and allow you to grow with us in this Kommunity driven business.
We say Kommunity because we respond directly to your needs and are always open to hearing your feedback & suggestions.
