Bags by Immy is a business and dream started by entrepreneur Mrs. Nsubuga Imelda of Komamboga, Gayaza (affectionally known as “Immy”). Starting in June of 2014, Bags by Immy was inspired after acquiring training from the NGO (non-government organization) Work With Hands Christian Ministries (WWHCM). The major purpose of this organization is to empower women in depressed countries and/or environments in providing an avenue to get them out of poverty. Motivated by the idea of empowering women, Immy collaborated to 10 fellow graduates, sold them on the concept of coming together and collectively utilizing their skills to better the future of their families and Bags By Immy was born.
Our vision is simple yet powerful: To become a leading exporter of unique, durable, exquisite, handcrafted Ugandan products to the outside world.
Bags By Immy is undoubtably gaining traction in both regional and international markets. With a network of agents working on our behalf, our bags are gradually gaining notoriety in countries such as Tanzania, Bahamas, and Denmark. Always seeking to expand into other markets, plans are underway, coupled with an aggressive marketing strategy, Bags By Immy has impressive goals to reach more countries in the coming year.
As was emphasized, Bags By Immy cares about the environment. Materials used for creating our handmade bags are a delicate combination of bamboo wood and beads. Strong string called Silver Fisher (fishing line) is used to join the materials and make the designs seen on our bags. The material we use help our bags stand out from among the crowd. Specifically, our materials are:
Bags By Immy’s purses and clutches sizes ranges from small (clutches) to large (purses). Medium size bags are categorized as 28” (12.7cm) in length. The dimension of the medium bags is 11” (5cm) W x 28” (12.7cm) L. Large bags have a dimension of 12” (5.45cm) W x 30” (13.63cm) L. Clutches range from wallet size 4” (1.8cm) W x 8.5” (3.86cm) L to 6” (2.72cm) W x 14” (6.36cm) L, and they also come in a variety of colors and designs. Some of our customers do request matching purses and clutches to carry depending on the event being attended. Like we emphasize Bags By Immy purses and clutches are durable enough for everyday use and elegant enough to compliment formal and sophisticated evening wear.
Despite the sizes of many of our handcrafted products, they tend to surprisingly light when it come to weight. The weight for our medium bags ranges from 1.5lbs. (.7kg) to 1.7lbs (.8kg). For our large bags the weight ranges from 1.7lbs (.8kg) to 3.3lbs (1.5kgs). Even though our bags are relatively light in comparison to traditional bags of the same size, it is noteworthy to state that the weight of our bags are depended upon customer’s taste, material type, and/or design preferences. As an example, handcrafted bags made from round wood may be slightly heavier than those bags crafted from flat wood.
