Moonage the story
From a little village in the Netherlands between the Dutch cows, all the way to a small exotic island; two young women with the desire to travel the world crossed oceans and found their new home in Bali. A normal life wasn’t enough for them, they had a vibrant hope for the unknown. A heart filled with island vibes, freedom and most of all: a place where they could create something new.
Living on Bali is a different kind of life. Both woman fell in love with this lifestyle; always being surrounded by nature, driving a motorbike between the rice fields, practicing yoga underneath palm trees and daily beach walks with their rescued dogs. To live close with nature, means to live with the sun and the moon, waking up with sunrise and take a moment of reflection around sunset time; a walk on the beach and simply watch the sun goes down in the beautiful ocean.
How these two woman describe themselves: ‘oh I’m such a look at the sky person’, ‘look at the sunset’, ‘look at the moon’ or a ‘let’s stay in the car to listen to the rest of the song’, type of person.
Like the moon goes through phrases, these two young woman also have their own journey, a life abroad brings lots of adventures and never gets this woman bored. Wanderlust will always consume them, the moon never will stop these two woman to look up, keeping the spirit alive and believe in all the beauty of life.
The two souls got inspired by the local lifestyle. Balinese people create the most beautiful handmade treasures with a unique designs. The two woman brought their creative minds together and designed rattan bags together with the local Balinese community. All products are different and unique and made with love. The Moonage bags are created with the inspiration of the sun and the moon; the cycle of life.

Bye bye plastic. Living in Bali shows us one of the biggest problem of the island: plastic. Plastic has become a serious waste problem. Every year eight million ton of plastic disappears into the ocean. Another problem is the amount of pollution caused by the manufacture of plastic.
