We joined forces with our friends over at Apolis to create a limited edition Market Bag.
Since 2009 Apolis has partnered with Saidpur Enterprises, a co-op of over 70 artisans, to produce a sturdy, waterproof-lined, leather-handled, bastion of utility known as the Market Bag.
Not only does the co-op provide fair jobs for Bangladeshi women, it also contributes a portion of its profits to social and educational projects in the community of Saidpur.
Most recently the co-op purchased school supplies for over 400 local children and they are working with Apolis to build the Bangladesh Sewing Academy, which will teach job skills to local women.
PERFECT FOR TRIPS TO THE FARMER'S MARKET OR BEACH, THE MARKET BAG IS CONSTRUCTED FROM 100% RECYCLABLE JUTE FIBER HARVESTED IN BANGLADESH. IT FEATURES A WATERPROOF LINING, NATURAL VEGETABLE DYED LEATHER STRAPS, ANTIQUE NICKEL RIVETS AND A SMALL INSIDE POCKET FOR YOUR PHONE AND KEYS.
OVERALL DIMENSIONS: 13" x 18" x 8"
MADE IN BANGLADESH AND FINISHED IN CALIFORNIA
