Every pledge over our goal helps us provide more training and jobs to disenfranchised women in Cambodia. Watch the stories of the women who are being impacted.
Net Effects Traders is a small emerging company with a big dream. Our dream is to provide training, fair wage jobs and great working conditions to disenfranchised Cambodians – especially women and mothers. At the same time, we are committed to bringing fabulous, meticulously designed eco-friendly messenger bags and totes to thoughtful on-the-go consumers.
Our story is simple — After living and working for a major non-profit in some of the most disadvantaged neighborhoods in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, and seeing how the women, men, and children were trapped in poverty. And how so many end up begging or scavenging in the streets just to get by we realized:
•If we wanted to have a real and lasting impact on poverty...
•If we wanted to help women and men gain self-confidence, pride of workmanship and sense of self-worth and have the tools to escape poverty...
We needed to help provide training and fair wage jobs.
So, we became advocates for Trade Instead of Aid. And Net Effects Traders was born.
Committed to bringing stylish, high quality impeccably designed products to the world meant we needed a design and production team that could meet the demands of Western consumers. And we found the perfect partner in Peace Handicraft of Phnom Penh. Peace Handicraft is a talented and experienced Cambodian company and that has been training and providing fair wage jobs to polio and landmine survivors, hearing impaired and impoverished moms for over a decade.
Peace Handicraft shares our commitment to the people of Cambodia and our commitment to great design and quality bags and totes.
Now we are introducing our exclusive “Easy Breezy Messenger bag” to the Kickstarter Community. And we invite you to partner with us to change lives!! We cannot make this dream come true without your partnership.
Designed especially with busy professionals, students, on-the-go moms and travelers and commuters in mind…
Committed to sustainable futures we repurpose industrial net remnants so you can rest easy that your purchase is eco-friendly and zero waste.
Our unique net fabric means the Easy Breezy is water resistant, durable and can go anywhere anytime.
And the Easy Breezy is free of lead, toxins or hazardous dyes.
And don’t forget a portion of the profits from all sales are donated to “Nothing but Nets” to help protect impoverished families around the globe from mosquito-born diseases like Malaria and Zika.
We are thrilled to partner with Kickstarter and want to share with you the fun of having a messenger bag you love to carry and the joy of knowing you are making a difference.
Crafted with love by our incredible design and production team, so you know you are changing lives with every bag you buy.
THE BIRTH OF THE EASY BREEZY MESSENGER BAG
We wanted to bring to market a unique, durable and carefully designed Messenger Bag.
We wanted a Messenger Bag that would fit the needs of professionals, students, travelers and busy moms.
We wanted a design pattern and color choices that would appeal to both guys and gals, young and old, urban and suburban.
We wanted this Messenger Bag to be made with repurposed industrial netting making it zero-waste with a special appeal to shoppers who want to buy products that are great and do good.
We wanted to create a bag that would meet all your needs, a bag you would love to carry that was also a message of hope and change.
Our team designed the Easy Breezy exclusively for our Kickstarter campaign.
We hope you will enjoy using it as much as we enjoyed making it.

Risks and challenges
Net Effects Traders has no serious risks and challenges to completing our project.
Our Cambodian design and production team members are highly skilled. With over a decade of experience producing products ranging from bags to clothing and accessories they have a proven track record to complete large orders of products on time and on budget.
The product designs and prototypes have been completed and tested. The materials and our trained production staff are available and ready. We have a clear and well defined production schedule.
We believe we have allotted sufficient production and shipping time so we can fulfill all the rewards no later than August 2017.
The only risk is that if there is a huge response to our campaign, which we are hoping for, we could potentially need more time to fulfill and ship rewards that result from the later pledges.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
