Sling this hypnotic, brocade-laden handbag over your shoulder and head off to solve world problems! Made recycled vintage saris that would otherwise be burnt to recover their gold or silver content, each unique bag is hand-crafted by a women's cooperative in New Delhi. By putting old saris to use, the original craftsmanship is preserved and each sling bag becomes a work of art. The women of the cooperative earn much-needed income to care for their children and households. Expect each purse to vary and be a bit unique just like the women who once wore these saris!

Available in your choice of Green, Turquoise, or Brown, each bag is lined with 100% black cotton. Bag secures with a magnetic closure, and features a zippered pocket and a pouch for your cell phone on the interior sides.

Sling bag measures 5" T x 8" W (12.7 x 20.3 cm). Handmade in and fairly traded from India.

September 15, 2013 - This bag is beautiful and well-made. The strap is a bit long for me, so I just shortened it myself. The sari material is beautiful, and the vintage appearance of the recycled fabric is unique and charming. Any 'designer' version of the same bag would sell for at least 3 times the price, which means you can buy 3 of them for a good cause and give them as gifts! Thank you to the talented craftswomen who designed these lovely bags! I bought my turquoise bag at the regular price, and I am so happy to see they are still available, and now at a reduced price I can buy even more.
