This bag is as versatile as it gets. Roomy and expandable, it can be used as a handbag and it has a longer, detachable strap so that it can be worn on the shoulder. It is large enough to carry all that you need for a day out or for everyday use – it can accommodate all your daily essentials along with a tablet or a 13” laptop.

The plastic is collected from Bhangaar Wadas (waste collection points), washed and dried, cut into yarn and is finally hand woven by artisans on traditional looms at Khamir, Kutch.
It is then sewn under fair trade conditions by the Self Help Center in Mumbai in combination with organic cotton fabrics that are naturally dyed with herbs, fruits and vegetables.
