Laga Handbags was started by Roy van Broekhuizen and his wife Louise.
"We formed Laga Designs International, Inc. to provide income for those
who lost their livelihood from the tsunami, but what transpired is much, much more:
we developed a personal relationship with the people of Aceh...
and we left our hearts in their homes."
In Indonesia, Laga Handbags provides a place of peace, refuge and love for victims of disaster who are rebuilding their lives, one handbag at a time. More »
