SUSTAINABILITY: The sisal fiber is sustainably harvested from the leaves of the agave plant. It is rich with fiber. The fiber is dried and dyed with locally sourced natural dye either from plants, tree bark, flowers or soil. The entire process is done by hand.
ETHICAL FASHION: Ethical fashion is the awareness of the people and the process of making our accessories. It is fashion that is morally right for the people that create, the environment they are in and fair compensation of their effort. This bag is handmade by women in their community using ancient weaving craftsmanship.
