About Roka Designs

Have you ever found yourself in town or anywhere, it starts raining and you fear that your important belongings will get wet and spoiled? Every day when my partner and I (who are childhood friends) went to school and it rained, our books and belongings would get wet. Up until 2019, we faced the same challenge.

However, early in the year of 2020, while sharing a cup of coffee in a restaurant we discovered that billboards and banners after being used lacked a proper way of disposal and could very well serve as good materials for making bags that are waterproof and trendy since each billboard comes with its own design.

Because of that, we started making trendy eco-friendly and waterproof bags from recycled billboards and banners, and that was how ROKA Designs was born. Ever since then, people who use our bags do not fear for their belongings when it rains.  Furthermore, we keep on saving the environment from plastic waste pollution.

Our Mission
