The Bihan satchel is made from handwoven cotton and brass fittings and has an adjustable strap, internal zip pocket, magnetic fastenings and an extra handy zip pocket on the back. The fabric is woven with several different colour stands, which gives it a subtle two-tone effect. and they come in four gorgeous colouways. This handmade and fair trade bag is also unisex and vegan friendly and can be paired with matching or contrasting scarves, wristwarmers or even a mug.
Dimensions: L28cm x W31cm x D10cm with 120cm strap.
Machine washable on cool. Do not tumble dry.
These stylish bags are handmade in Nepal by a small workshop affiliated with the Nepal Leprosy Trust, which employs marginalised people, giving them opportunities through work. The workshop is certified by the WFTO and pays the workers a fair wage as well as providing health care benefits and contributions to children's school fees. The brass fittings are handmade by artisans in Kathmandu from locally sourced brass. Using brass has the environmental benefit that it can be recycled over and over again without losing any of its properties.
The Bihan cotton satchels are brought to us by Aura Que, who, like us, are members of BAFTS the UK Fair Trade Network.
