We create market bags designed for beautiful moments and lasting global impact.
--Apolis Co-Founder and Family
Apolis is a small group of social entrepreneurs who believe that the most valuable practice in creating lasting change is by investing in people.
Our model of Advocacy Through Industry is a revolutionary way to harness the power of business to create social change. It's model founded on the simple idea that people can live better lives when they are given equal access to the global marketplace.
Every Apolis market bag is handcrafted in Bangladesh by hundreds of mothers who receive Fair Trade-certified wages, annual profit dividends and a retirement fund.
The bags are then shipped to Los Angeles, California, where a growing team of 13 people print one-of-a-kind customizations onto the bag.
We believe that the commonality between currencies, flags and languages is people. It is people who are the innovators, the advocates, and the revolutionaries.
