Fair Trade Tote Bag
This sturdy, multi-purpose, and inspirational jute tote bag is a perfect piece to use whilst running around town.
Jute, a fiber called ‘hessian’ in North America, is a natural, highly affordable, versatile, biodegradable and renewable fiber. Jute is known to have characteristics such as high intensity, long durability, fire and heat resistance, and a silky luster & texture. Traditionally Jute fabric, also known as ‘burlap’, was used to make products like sacks and ropes. With recent technological advancements, Jute fabric is now used in making a variety of products including fashion accessories, bags, rugs, and table linens.
This bag is made following fair trade practices by rural artisans in Southern India. This means that the artisans were compensated fairly for their work, and this product is supporting the artisan community and empowering women.
