HANDMADE IN BANGLADESH
We hope you like our small and very special collection of unique patchwork bags. The bag measures W50 x H50 cm and has an internal zipped pocket. The handle measures 60 cm.
The bag is quilted, made of three layers of vintage cotton saris and lined with GOTS certified organic cotton.
The bag is hand-stitched with uniform visible stitches, called kantha stitches. Kantha is a special way of embroidery and is a centuries-long tradition originally from Bangladesh and India.
The beautiful bag is sewn together in a fine patchwork pattern and took more than 10 hours to sew.
When you buy a bag, you help ensure proper, meaningful and dignified jobs for marginalized women in Bangladesh. The women work for a socially responsible company, where they receive a fair salary, annual bonus (dividend) and professional training.

The bag is made from vintage saris, which means the product has a history. The saris have previously been worn by women in Bangladesh. They have now been upcycled and given a new life. This means that the bags are not perfect and may have minor stains and patches on them.
The bag is lined with GOTS certified organic cotton. GOTS (The Global Organic Textile Standard) is the most recognized global standard for the processing of organic fibers. The standard is supported by an independent third-party certification and is a guarantee of compliance with a wide range of environmental and social criteria throughout the supply chain. Textiles that are GOTS certified must contain a minimum of 70% certified organic fibres.
As the products are handmade, no two products will ever be made exactly the same. We hope that you will appreciate the small features of the products and their history as much as we do - and we hope that you will enjoy them for many years to come.
