Pacific Shopper Indigo & White
Full of strength and style, the Jute Shopper has been carefully crafted from natural jute and cotton fibres to shop with you for years to come!
The fabric is handwoven by fair trade artisans in remote, rural communities of Bangladesh. They dye and prepare the jute, then work from home or a community weaving space on traditional wooden looms to create this stunning diamond pattern!
Finally, the bags have been sewn and topped with two sturdy wrapped jute handles in a sewing workshop that supports women who have been rescued from prostitution. These timeless bags are full of our trademark texture, and also make a lovely statement piece on a hook or hat rack at home.
