At Sapahn, we embrace our responsibility to respect human rights as outlined in the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. We are accountable to our artisans and customers, and do business in a way that promotes the inherent dignity, equality and rights of all. We think deeply about how our business decisions and practices impact everyone in our value change. We listen to our artisans, problem solve with them, work with them to overcome challenges, and ensure that they are in a position to protect themselves, their interests, and each other.

At Sapahn, we’re building a bridge to a better world by harnessing the power of fashion to advance the rights of ALL people.

Our luxury leather bags and accessories not only look good— they’re helping make the world a more beautiful place by honoring the basic human rights of workers throughout our value chain.

We’ve fully embraced a regenerative business model that prioritizes personal empowerment over charity—and human rights is at the heart of all we do.

Our Human Rights Commitment in Action:


Our artisans are empowered to set their own wages for their creations.


We recognize the importance of offering wages and work conditions that are attractive to the local workforce, particularly the youth, who may be otherwise pushed into undesirable circumstances.


We invest in processes, materials, and technologies that safeguard the health of our artisans. 

From the way we make our bags to how we run our business. In our relationships and in the community. In our words and our actions. Each touchpoint presents an opportunity to spread joy, foster positivity, and further our mission.

When you carry a Sapahn, you help #carryforward our belief that no one should be disregarded, dismissed, or discounted. Everyone is meaningful, and everyone deserves a life full of meaning.

These are the principles Sapahn was founded on in 2010 that continue to be the driving force behind our mission.
