At Ethnotek, our mission is to keep culture alive by creating high quality laptop and travel bags that feature ethically sourced handmade textiles. Your purchase sustains employment for the art of hand printing, weaving and embroidery with our partnering artisan villages in Ghana, Guatemala, India, Indonesia and Vietnam. Ethnotek is so much more than just a bag! It's a celebration of culture, it's a community, it's a global movement! Come join the Tribe, together we can keep culture alive!

ETHNO - TEK: Ethnotek is the fusion of two entities: Ethnology and Technology.

[ETHNO] – Ethnology - Anthropology dealing chiefly with the comparative and analytical study of cultures.

[TEK] – Technology - The methods and tools that a society has developed in order to facilitate the solution of its practical problems.

Most Ethnotek bags can be customized via the removable front panel called a Thread™. Each Thread™  is created from handmade textiles that are sourced in person and purchased directly from the artisan or craft village in which they were created. We are continually scouring the globe to find textiles that embody the vibrancy and beauty of the people who create them and the traditions they represent.  We release new Threads™ regularly, allowing you to update the look of your bag without having to buy a new one entirely. This puts a whole new meaning to changing your threads!
