Travel bag (sari)SE-MH165-4
HANDMADE IN BANGLADESH
We hope you love our collection of unique bags in many colors and with various beautiful patterns. The bag measures W60 x H44 cm and has three external and three internal pockets as well as a short and long adjustable handle.
The bag is quilted, made of three layers of vintage cotton saris and lined with GOTS certified organic cotton. It 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. It has taken approximately seven hours to record, cut and sew on a machine.
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.

This bag is made from vintage sarees, 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. The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) 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.
Since the products are handmade, no two products will ever be exactly alike. We hope that you will appreciate the little features of the products and their history as much as we do – and we hope that you will be able to enjoy them for many years to come.
