CONCEPT: Made and Sailed in Hawaii

SOOZOU is a new environmentally trendy and friendly bag company from Hawaii. It features a new array of bags and accessories made from used sails that have traveled the waters of Hawaii and beyond.
The primary objective is two-fold: 1) reuse local resources and 2) produce locally to keep the environmental footprint of these products at a minimum.
Each piece is handmade through a women development project in collaboration with the Kokua Kalihi Valley Community Health Center. This is a great opportunity for women living in the Kalihi Valley Housing Project to generate income and increase their standard of living.
 
HANDMADE
SOOZOU products are solely handmade. Each item is a unique and special piece and not a machine produced clone. We believe little imperfections give each item its character and soul and we treasure this. Subtle irregularities that do not harm the quality or appearance of SOOZOU products add to its self-made charm (self-made with love of course!)
 
THE PRODUCT
Tote bags, shoulder bags, reusable shopping bags and cosmetic bags made from individually recycled sails that have originated in Hawaii. Therefore, each piece is one of a kind and will vary in color, texture and decorative stitching.
Sails are fit for all weather conditions and are able to resist the heaviest storms. The materials are sturdy, water-resistant and durable, meeting SOOZOU’s high standards of quality and design.
 
THE DESIGN
The design of SOOZOU is kept clean, simple and minimalistic. Working with the sail’s texture and stitching keeps the character of the sail alive and embraces the fact that a SOOZOU bag was once a sail upon the high seas. Its upscale, urban, industrial and playful look reflects the intriguing history and personality of each bag’s origin.
 
THE SIGNATURE LOOK:
1. Large grommets with customizable and interchangeable straps that al­low a variety of rope styles and colors as well as several ways to loop the rope for total versatility.
2. SOOZOU artwork and graphics are silk-screened by hand. Each bag has a printed map of the Hawaiian Islands as an indicating its heritage and certifying that each bag was made and sailed in Hawaii.
