Our shopper/ tote bags are all made from jute. Because each bag is handmade, it makes each one unique and not one bag is exactly the same.
They are the perfect bag for essentials for your holidays, everyday routines, shopping and travelling.
They are a joyous stylish feature for your wardrobe or even as home decor.
Supporting Women in Rural Bangladesh
We work with talented handicraft women in rural Bangladesh. The women have the option to work at the community centre or at home to fit in with their family lives'. The women are paid directly. We're proud to support the education, healthcare and livelihoods of the craftspeople in Bangladesh who have become Louise’s “extended family”.
Jute fibre is 100% bio-degradable and recyclable and thus environmentally friendly. A hectare of jute plants consumes about 15 tonnes of carbon dioxide and releases 11 tonnes of oxygen. Cultivating jute in crop rotations enriches the fertility of the soil for the next crop. Jute also does not generate toxic gases when burnt.
Another benefit of jute is that it is very strong- our bags can carry between 10 kgs -14 kgs. Each bag contains 450m of jute. Our jute bags are handmade and no machinery is used at all throughout the process, except for the dying. Only Azo free dyes are used.
Please note that as the bags are handmade, the sizes can vary slightly.
