Chinese Design Concepts


Founded in 2009, Ekokami is based in Shanghai, manufactures in China and uses recycled printed cotton from Japan. Committed to sustainability Ekokami makes durable and fashionable bags using recycled cork and 80% cellulose paper fibres. Their name brings together the twin concepts of being ecological (Eko) and using paper (kami) with their first collection being dedicated to bags made form this material.


Madame Mao's Dowry currently has examples of both their cork and paper products and we love them! Their bags are lined with beautiful printed Japanese cotton and their paper envelope is a quality-made product with an artisanal feel.
