LAGA Designs International Inc is pleased to announce that Laga Handbags and Accessories Division will be at the NY International Gift Fair Handmade Division booth No.5435.

Laga will be featuring for the very first time their new eco-chic handbags, the Tasik Collection, made from eco friendly Water Hyacinth, Pandanus leaves, Dried Rice Stalks, Coconut Leaves, Coconut Twigs, Coconut Shell, and Mahogany used for the handles.

"We firmly believe that it is possible to feel good by doing good -- a statement that is at the very heart of LAGA Handbags," says Roy van Broekhuizen, CEO and Co-Founder of Laga Designs International.

"We've received an overwhelming response to our beautiful handmade products and we are confident that our new line of eco-chic bags, the Tasik Collection, will get positive feedback from current as well as new buyers."

The New York International Gift Fair runs August 15-19 at the Jacob Javits Center, Manhattan, NY.

Buyers at the NYIGF receive Free Shipping with Orders of $200.00 or more, and LAGA will be offering fantastic Specials, please come and visit us at Booth No.5435.

LAGA Designs slogan is appropriately, "Handbags Helping People," and a generous portion of sales go towards a cause very close to van Broekhuizen's heart -- helping Aceh families get back on their feet after their livelihoods were destroyed by the 2004 tsunami.

Roy, who just finished his 20th trip to Indonesia since January 2005, and his wife Louise, found that they were unable to leave the devastated area without setting up a more long-lasting, sustainable stream of income for the Aceh residents.

LAGA Handbags, are distinctive, durable and elegant, made by skilled artisans from villages in Aceh. Even the name "LAGA" comes from the word lagak, which means "beautiful" in the Acehnese dialect.

LAGA keeps up with the latest trends in fashion and accessories and tweaks them into new designs to create a a fusion of contemporary and traditional patterns.

LAGA was formed to provide income for those who lost their livelihood, but what transpired is much, much more," says Louise van Broekhuizen, President and Co-Founder. We developed a personal relationship with the people of Aceh, and we left our hearts in their homes."
