Bembien was founded by  Yi-Mei Truxes in Greenpoint Brooklyn in 2017 with the mission to create bags that evoke nostalgia and perennial style.
      At the forefront of Bembien's work is their support of precious weaving communities. It is their goal to help bring this craft into a wider market on the other side of the globe. 10% of all Bembien proceeds go back into their local community in partnership with the nonprofit Nest.
