What happened To The Namaste Bag?
The Namaste Bag brand was phased out at the end of 2020. This was due to the company recognizing using Namaste has hurt and offended people. They apologized – specifically to the South Asian and BIPOC communities.
The makers’ bags are still available on the Jimmy Bean’s website but will be relaunched under another name later in 2021.
