It all began in March 2014, when canvas bag enthusiast Presi Mandari started to sell her handmade canvas bags online. One year later, she decided to leave her career as an international news agency journalist to focus on her passion project with graphic designer husband Toto Prastowo.
When the two complementary talents join forces, it was a match made in heaven. Presi’s simple and clean bag designs; and Toto’s imaginative illustrations beautifully translated into Sackai Bags, the intersection where quality, functionality, originality, and simplicity meet.
Designed for everyday use, Sackai Bags simple and functional collections range from tote bags to backpacks— get a touch of magic from playful graphics hand screen- printed onto them. The animal characters and playful scenes featured on the bags serve as a reminder of fun and excitement from seemingly ordinary everyday activities.
They started small but full of energy, and hope. Today Sackai Bags is a burgeoning home-based business. The brand is not only selling hundreds of products monthly online, they are also available at a highly selective specialty store for high quality and original products at Alun Alun Grand Indonesia, at a prominent art space and gallery Salihara, at Plaza Bali Duty Free Shop of Soekarno Hatta International airport to name a few locations.
Produced in a limited quantity to ensure quality and exclusivity, Sackai Bags has gained a strong customer base. The customers choose Sackai Bags for its uniqueness, incomparable to other products currently available in the market.
