Upcycled Tote Bag | Blues
When waste becomes a beautiful thing; our Upcycled Tote has been lovingly hand crafted using up the smallest pieces of our garment waste so that they don't land up in landfill. Each bag is entirely unique and one of a kind, using up various fabrics from our clothing collection; tencel as well as hemp & organic cotton jersey and linen.
The body of the bag is hand knotted by Malawian women who have come to Cape Town to seek a better lives for themselves but who have found the realities of South Africa's high unemployment crisis. It's a steady and much needed income which inspires their creativity whilst they can work in the comfort and ease of their homes.
Fully lined in Tencel, the bag is finished by Macdonald of Mukanya Creations, a talented and skilled leather-smith who delicately imparts the high quality leather handles.
The generously sized Tote Bag measures approximately 50cm wide and 40cm in height. Handle straps are a fixed length, approximately 40cm in height. The bag closes on the inside with a magnetic popper.
