When we set out to create Pegai, we were a two-person team in our apartment, working on our very first wallet designs. A year later, we’re working out of our Ravenswood, Chicago office with our small team and dozens of wallet, bag, belt, and home product designs.
Despite these changes, we stay true to our original mission: providing quality education to children across the globe. From the very beginning, we have existed to leave this world a better place than it was when we first started.
From our roots growing up in Turkey and TAIWAN, to our time in graduate school in Illinois and traveling INTERNATIONALLY, we’ve been inspired to help children achieve a brighter future for themselves.
That’s why with every product sold, we donate a portion to support global education efforts. It’s also why, with every product that we design and craft, that we use the most sustainable and ethical practices.
It’s the Pegai way.
With all our best,
Volkan Yilmaz & Ariel Yu
