The colourful stripes are made from the discarded offcuts of the massive garment industry in India by an NGO devoted to promoting wasteland development, women's empowerment in rural areas and the fair treatment of its artisans, these bags represent a new way to create sustainable products that not only look good, but do good too.
Individually hand made they are also made to last so that each and every bag is made with the same care, attention and skill as brand new ones that come from the same makers. You can be sure that these 'recycled' bags will not only add a touch of vibrant colour to your life, but will do so for years to come.
These products are expertly handcrafted by TARA Projects (Trade Alternative Reform Action), a World Fair Trade Organisation (WFTO) and founding Fair Trade Forum India member.
Established in the early 1970’s, they are dedicated to creating opportunities and support for economically disadvantaged home-based artisans and crafts people in Delhi. Over the years the project has extended its work into the adjoining states of Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, and Rajasthan.
The project provides services to enable the production and marketing of handicrafts following Fair Trade principles, as well as providing education and support to empower their grassroots artisans. The heart of their work is dedicated to eradicating poverty, by fighting against exploitation and illiteracy amongst their producers and working communities. They help to fund schools and empower women as part of their drive to support marginalised groups.
By making a purchase, you are helping to continue the fantastic work of our producers.
