Dep means handsome or beautiful in Vietnamese.
since that’s where ethnotek’s bags are sewn and
where company founder/head designer Jake Orak
lives half the year, he named the sleeve after a Vietnamese word that says, “dang that’s a good looking
laptop sleeve!”

Partnering with artisans in Ghana,
Guatemala, India, Indonesia and Vietnam, Ethnotek
incorporates handmade textiles into its bags, as
well as sturdy stitching, a big-toothed zipper, and
svelte padding.
