Antarctic Climate & Ecosystems CRC – International Symposium on Sea Ice in a Changing Environment (IGS 2014): Provided a mix of bags for a conference

"We placed an order with SEW only a few weeks out from the start of the conference and luckily they had 200 bags in stock. We received a wonderful mix of bags (conference bags and large tote bags) only a few days after placing the order. The Australia-based team were very efficient in sending the samples and later express posting the bags to us.

Almost every delegate attending the International Symposium on Sea Ice in a Changing Environment commented on the fabulous look and functionality of the conference bags and the story within them of the woman who made that particular bag. The handy bag will continue to be used by delegates for many years!

It was moving to find out that our order almost covers the yearly workshop rent!

We look forward using the bags in the future for other symposia/conferences."



Zoe Elizabeth: Melbourne's own Bikini Queen, Zoe Elizabeth joined SEW to design a fair trade collection of beach bags and pouches in time for summer.

"It was such a wonderful opportunity to work with SEW Tanzania in a creative collaboration with my label Zoe Elizabeth. Jessie and her team were a pleasure to work with and I am looking forward to developing this relationship in the future. The quality and craftsmanship that went into the bags by the "Sewing Mammas" was of an incredibly high standard and were received so well at our Christmas event that we sold out! Starting to plan my next collaboration with SEW and the possibilities are endless."


Clean Air Society of Australia and New Zealand (CASANZ): Provided A4 Conference bags which included a custom CASANZ stamp on the bags.

"The Clean Air Society of Australia and New Zealand (CASANZ) selected to use the bags made by the women of SEW Tanzania for their bi-annual conference held in Sydney is September 2013.

Every aspect of our contact with SEW was extremely professional and prompt.  When we enquired about using them, I don’t believe SEW had previously filled such a large order (300 bags) in one go but that didn’t stop them!  The Australia-based team went above and beyond our expectations to find a solution for us to attach our sponsor logos to the bags, which ultimately they did very successfully.  We were happy, the sponsor was happy, and the conference attendees were happy!  

The bags are of excellent quality and knowing that not only are they made entirely from recycled materials, but that by purchasing these bags we helped make a real difference to the quality of the lives of the women in Tanzania just made them all the more special and unique compared to the usual conference satchel. I for one still use my bag regularly!" - Judith Cox, CASANZ
