Global Girlfriend Freeset Tote

Item # 38098
No longer available

Show you're a Global Girlfriend everywhere you go -- the grocery store, the shopping mall, the library, and beyond! Each tote is made of eco-friendly renewable jute by women who have been trafficked and rescued from brothels in India and who find acceptance, hope, and a new start at Freeset Bags in Calcutta. By purchasing this bag, you become a vital part in their journey toward freedom -- true Global Girlfriends!

Handmade by women rescued from a life of sex trafficking by a unique social enterprise called Freeset Bags in Calcutta, India. Each bag tells the story of one woman's journey to freedom -- from a life of rampant poverty and forced prostitution toward a life of dignity, a living wage with decent hours, and the opportunity to become literate. What's more, it allows these women to lead by example -- providing a role model for their daughters and other young girls in showing them how to break free of the cycle of poverty and despair.

  • Blue or Brown
  • 100% jute fiber
  • 9" T x 12" W x 2.5" D (22.9 x 30.5 x 6.4 cm)
  • Handmade in and fairly traded from India

Created to help women worldwide gain economic security for themselves and their families by earning fair wages for their handiwork, Global Girlfriend sources women-made, fair-trade imported, eco-friendly products. By supporting long-term partnerships with the artisans, it fosters equal employment opportunities, healthy and safe working conditions, technical assistance, and development strategies to help reduce poverty, one community at a time. Become a "Global Girlfriend" and help build a brighter future for girlfriends around the globe!

April 15, 2013 - Awful. Hard, hard, rough burlap that you can't even hold without cutting up your hand, and the brown coloring comes off on your hand too. I am returning this awful product. It's a shame b/c I really wanted to support such a great charity, but the product is such a rip-off I just have to return it.
