It takes singular skill -- and a lot of vision -- to create a beautifully distinctive, useful accessory from materials previously destined for a landfill. Tightly woven plastic grocery bags are "up-cycled" and paired with sturdy nylon to create this substantial, one-of-a-kind tote. Great looking -- and great for the environment, too.

Made by women artisans in Kenya's semi-arid eastern province, a region where extremely sparse rainfall and subsequent drought have caused abject poverty. With an emphasis on fair principles and good working conditions, these skilled jewelry makers and textile weavers gather in workshops and private homes to create new economic opportunity for themselves and their families.

  • Black, Green, or White
  • Recycled plastic shopping bags with nylon lining
  • 12" T x 13" W (30.5 x 27.9 x 33 cm)
  • Handmade in and fairly traded from Kenya

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!
