Striped Shoulder Bag

Buy The Change

You will LOVE the earthy, organic feel of this shoulder bag. These are only produced for one month each year when the leaves and bark used to create the natural dyes are available in northern Thailand. The unbleached, organic cotton thread is dyed then woven into fabric on a back strap loom.

The women who create these bags are refugees from Burma living in the MaeLa Refugee Camp in Northern Thailand. Your purchase of this bag gives them the needed funds to survive and begin the process of relocation from the camp.

Each organic cotton purse is sewn on a foot powered sewing machine creating a bag that is 100% organic, handmade and eco-friendly.
