The Bag Lady at the End of the Road

"How does a gal at the end of the road with little more than a commercial sewing machine create a business and help change the Alaska Salmon Industry? The NOMAR brailer bag improved the quality of the salmon delivered. Better quality helped improve the bottom line for the fishermen-businessmen. In turn, they supported an Alaskan business that created year round jobs in a small Alaska town. Our town, Homer.

The NOMAR story is our family story. It is a Homer story, an Alaska story. Ideas for new things to make came from all over Alaska. Nothing happen without a lot of people working to make it so." -Kate Mitchell, founder of NOMAR
