Testimonials

Thank you to the many, many fans that have sent us beautiful letters in response to Laga Designs. We get so many that we couldn’t possibly share them all, but here is a small sample of the kind of feedback we get for our beautiful handmade handbags. Trust us, this is just a small sampling! We love you, too! Thanks for all your love and support!

 

“I received my bag back in the mail today, and I am just so happy! THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH!!!!
“It is so refreshing to deal with a company that still appreciates their customers; I can honestly say that as much as I love the handbags, your customer service is what has won me over. Rest assured I will be buying another bag in the near future, and I have happily become a walking advertisement for your company. I cannot express to you how much I love this handbag I especially like the design with the side flaps for papers, the fact that it only has one zipper, the size is perfect, the craftsmanship amazing, and it’s all for a good cause!
“At any rate, I wanted to be sure that you know how appreciative I am and how much it means to me personally. I hope great things lie in store for you. God bless,”
–Norma Brock

“I love this bag (Harapan medium)! I have been the proud owner now for over 3 years, and it is still beautiful! I was concerned it would not hold up since I am very hard on my purses. It has withstood the test of time. I am a LAGA owner for life!”
–Laura Ryan

“I’ve had many designer bags from Kate Spade, Coach and my Louis Vuitton. It’s crazy to me how many more compliments I get with my Laga handbag. I have had strangers literally stop me on the street and even in a bathroom to ask where I got my bag. It’s when I tell them the story of how these bags have come to exist. Everyone loves the story behind these bags. My bag is beautifully handcrafted and with quality materials. I truly love it.”
–Sueann Garson, Temecula, CA

“I love mine! They last forever!”
–Dawne Reed, Newport Beach, CA

“I have this bag (Damai) in burgundy and black thread. I love this bag! It is just the right size for everyday use. Since I wear a lot of blacks & grays this bag gives me that pop of color.”
–Virginia Dunn, San Jose, CA

“This (Apas) is an AWESOME bag! The strap drop is perfect for throwing over your shoulder. This is my everyday bag. It holds a ton of goodies! I am so in love with this bag and get compliments on it every time I use it.”
–Gina Reddin, Abilene, TX

“I love my purse, I get a lot of compliments on it! I let them know about Laga! Tell them the story and inspiration on how they are made. God bless always!! Thank you!! Love you!!”
–Jasmine Bustos Johnson, CA

“Love love love mine!! I’ve used mine for 10 years and all of them are in perfect condition. I still get complements. Check out their story and website. It was tsunami in 2004 when they began. :)”
–Laura Carty, Irvine, CA

“I have had my Harapan bag for approximately 5 years. I use it almost exclusively and it has worn like iron! It is just now beginning to show SLIGHT signs of wear and I get just as many compliments on it as when it was brand new. It holds a lot (I am always stuffing my lunch and water bottles in it) and it is also extremely lightweight. The lining is still in perfect condition.

I should have kept track of how many people have asked what type of a bag it was, where I got it, etc. There is still rarely a day, if I am out shopping, that someone does not come up to me or comment at a check out counter at a store. I just ordered the same exact bag again and the old one still looks good enough to pass on to my daughter.

My only complaint is that there is not more neutral colors. I would have a few of the bags if they did. I did talk to the owner and more color choices may be available in the future. I would still love a beige and cream! I can’t say enough about this bag and the fact that it goes to a good cause, and the owners’ dedication to help these talented artisans are all great reasons to have one.”
–Kare Whitney

“I have two bags, a wallet and makeup bag. Love these products! They are equally beautiful and durable! And the company is making a difference in the world.”
–Tamara Sersansi Yergensen, Glendale, CA

“Beautiful bags with an even more beautiful story – love my Laga bag!!!!”
–Dorrie Schofield, Washington, DC

“I received this bag (Harapan medium) as a gift and have been in love ever since. I also got the matching wallet and a jewelry case. It’s beautiful and I get complimented daily. I use it at the beach, to the office, or even with an elegant dress because it’s so versatile.

Mine has a red lining and a black and beige exterior pattern but I swear I need every color! I met the owner at a Holland Festival and got to see all of the designs. I hadn’t realized they had been on Oprah!

I love that the owner is Dutch Indonesian and that she is giving back to the people of her country with this non profit item. A truly perfect handmade item with an amazing cause.”
–Rachael Ferraro, Physician, CA

“I have gotten so many compliments on my purse. I love it!!!”
–Irene Self, Vice President/Fiduciary Advisory Specialist, Wells Fargo Private Bank, Reno, NV

“Louise, your story has inspired me, your warm and gentle light blessed me on Sunday morning at #ewnconf. I feel grateful to have met you and we will meet again- as I will be sharing your handbags with my girlfriends and so many more. You are Brilliant; thank you for touching my life.”
–Shaun Stephenson, Mantua, NJ

“Hi, I stopped in your booth at the Long Beach Quilt Show last weekend and bought a handbag to give to my daughter-in-law for her birthday. The voice in my head kept saying “keep it, keep it, keep it” so I quickly wrapped it and gave it to her! I included the postcard you included and one of your business cards, too. She called me the next day and just went on and on about how beautiful it was and how much she loved it. This was the first gift she ever thanked me for! Now I have to buy one for myself! Thanks again for the work you do.”
–Cindy Pratt

“This is my 3rd Laga purse and I love them all! Bought a smallish one in Oct. ’12 (?) for carrying at conventions, stores, etc. It was so nice I bought a larger one to take on a business trip in Feb. ’13. I’ve used it non-stop since then.

Now I’m going to my summer convention and had been toying with purchasing a slightly different style in another color when I saw your tweet with 25% off. What a break! Even if these didn’t benefit such a great cause, the quality and style of your products would bring me back for more.

Thank you so much for the discount and please keep up the great work!”
–Veda Eissler, TX

“I get SO many compliments and tell everyone who asks about you guys and to look you up, I really hope some of them have. That purse is so functional and has held up to daily wear and tear and still, amazingly looks bright and new.”
–Marg Detkin, CA

“I just got back from a trip to Chicago and Boston and carried your tote in black and white. Everywhere I went people stopped me and asked about the bag . I cannot tell you how many times I wrote the name “Laga” down. It was fun and I so hope it helps you … I also want to give it as a present… By the way, I just made this connection in re-reading about your company. My daughter’s elementary school sent toys, art supplies and a truck load of clothes to an orphanage to Aceh when the tsunami hit. Thank you!”
–Liz Nankin, CA

“I got the bag. I LOVE IT. It is perfect and just what I wanted… Thank you so much. I’m thinking of going exclusive with Laga Bags as my ONLY brand of purses.”
–Mary Ayala-Bennett, Lakewood, CA

“I walked into the large Shoe Market store in Greensboro and as the saleswoman was directing me to her new shoe and bag section, I turned around and walked away from her toward the area with 8 of your [Laga] bags on display. I was amazed at the beauty, handwork, and then read the story. I will now carry my large brown/cream piece of art with pride. I will tell your story and direct others to this site. Thank you for your vision and for helping me work to empower women and girls.”
–Sandy Doyle-Jones, Greensboro, NC

“I just wanted to let you know I continue to get compliments on the Laga bag I have and when asked about it go into all the wonderful details and what a great cause it is. I was wondering if you would feel it appropriate to send me a few of the written details about Laga and that way when strangers come up to me I can give them one with the hope they will go on line and order a Laga bag!!! In the past folks have written the info down on a piece of paper and I’m not sure that it’s enough info for them to follow through. It’s such a wonderful cause. Let me know if you think this will help.
–Fiona Ryder, Charlton, MA

“I just read about your handbags in the Sat. Sept. 6th Register. They’re fabulous! We are also Saddleback Church members and I think this is such a wonderful endeavor. I was wondering if you have contacted Oprah regarding her “Favorite Things Show”. I bet she would love these bags and the cause! Best Wishes for your continuing success!”
–Mary Jo Cullum, Orange County, CA

“One of the people who got a purse at my Laga party was Debbie. She had been seeing my, Leslie’s and other Laga purses around the school and she fell in love with them. She has been getting tons of compliments on her Laga purse and today got a contact for you at a local museum where they want to sell your Laga purses at a special event that is coming up and perhaps the gift shop. She has gotten so many compliments… maybe I should take a small inventory to sell for you because I get so many compliments on mine as well!”
–Lisa Miller, Long Beach, CA

“I would like to order the Pagi Large dark blue/cream bag when it comes available. I will show off my Laga bag at work. …I was very impressed when I saw your booth at the Dutch Festival in Long Beach! I will come back again!”
–Catharina Eskes, Costa Mesa, CA

“I have carried a Laga bag for some time now, and I must say that I’ve been a walking advertisement! I can’t tell you how many times women have approached me asking where they could get such a great purse (I need to carry a stack of your business cards with me). In fact, I met one of your models, Tami Galloway, at an Irvine Chamber Mixer and we just so happened to be carrying Laga bags with the same design and color. I commend you and your husband for the great work you’ve done in bringing these wonderful bags to the US and the outstanding help you have offered those suffering in Indonesia.”
–Annette Di Bello, Aliso Viejo, CA

“I just discovered your beautiful, unique and meaningful handbags this afternoon while browsing a magazine… I’ve been looking at all the designer bags and was just thinking how I wish there was a bag I could carry that would help someone else and my wish came true when I read about Laga on your website. Thank you and please pass on my thanks to the artists who create these very special bags. I can’t wait to have one to call my own.”
I Found You At: “I was reading in the Fall fashion issue of The Boston Globe Magazine about a Massachusetts boutique that carried Laga bags. I was intriqued so I researched Laga more on the Internet.”
–Love, Christine 🙂

“Thank you so much for your prompt and thorough response. Sounds like I can indeed feel good about purchasing Laga bags and sending my friends to your website! My daughter went off this morning to an all-day event with her little Laga handbag in hand. I look forward to choosing a Laga bag for myself. Keep up the good work and God bless.”
–Kathy Basile, Pennsylvania

“I saw my first Laga bag and I was in love. I had to have a bag and would do anything to get one. Within days I contacted Louise and she responded immediately and openly invited me into her home and showroom to introduce these amazing pieces of art. She and her husband showed me how passionate they are about helping people in need and that is when I knew there was something special with Laga bags.
“Not only are these bags intricately handcrafted and unique, but they are made from the heart and each purchase made goes towards helping make one area of the world a better place. I truly feel by giving something you get something in return. With this purchase you not only get an amazing piece of work, but you get a feeling of completion knowing your helping the people of Aceh province in Indonesia rebuild their lives.”
–Nicole Sirote, Long Beach, CA

“I have purchased several of these bags. I also have Bottega, Gucci, Coach, YSL, Prada, Louis Vuitton, etc. I have received more compliments on my Laga bags than all my other bags combined. It’s the, “OMG, where did you find that? I love it”. And the best thing is that it helps the unfortunate victims of the devastating tsunami.”

–Judy Fouts, Seal Beach, CA

“I have shared your story with many of my friends. I actually forwarded your email to a list of Virginia Tech friends. I also emailed the Oprah Show and the Ellen Degeneres Show on your behalf. Just asking them to take a look at your website and possibly promote your products. You never know until you ask, 50/50 chance.”

When I was young, I learned to sew on a treadle sewing machine, so I can appreciate the true skill and artistry that the Aceh women display in their work.”
-Jan Littlefield, Denver, CO
