A roomy, structured tote that makes you feel as good as you look. Perfect for summer days at the lake or by the coast, this tote is responsibly sourced and supports small communities. Each bag is handwoven in Madagascar by a team of 400 artisans that work with renewable, sustainable and biodegradable natural fibers. Everything is handcrafted, from the splitting of leaves into thread-like balls of yarn, to natural dying of the pieces, to the weaving using a 100-year old technique. Each piece is crafted with love and care, with well-earned pride in the handiwork. Purchasing these sunny totes supports fair trade and fair wages practices that help sustain families, communities & artisan traditions. Each artist is proudly paid fair wages to continue the tradition of artisanal handmade products. Wonderful for gift-giving as each arrives with a descriptive tag describing the background of these unique totes.
This is a structured tote bag that stands on its own. Measures 16 x 12 x 7. Handles and binding are leather. Features a sewn-in drawstring cloth closure. Every piece is unique, due to the nature of handcrafted items, with slight variances.
