A really special Fair Trade recycled patchwork shoulder bag, which has a front flap made up from intricately decorative patchwork squares, hand stitched together.
• Each patterned square is different and utilises recycled saris and other Indian fabrics, making every bag unique.

• The front flap has a press stud closure.
• Inside, there is a main compartment which has two pockets to store purses, phones, keys etc
This Fair Trade recycled patchwork squares shoulder bag was carefully handmade by artisans in India. The embroidery is done with the fabric stretched over a frame, often by women in their own homes, to allow them to balance household and family duties with earning a good wage.
Dimensions - width 30 cm x height 30 cm approximately. The cotton shoulder strap is non adjustable and has a drop of 60 cm from the top of the bag.
Please note: the front of this bag is particularly delicate, so care must be taken - it is not suitable for heavy use. We recommend dry clean only.
Gopalas, Jaipur, India
Specialises in traditional embroidery, patchwork and other Indian textiles.
Gopalas was established as a platform for Indian artists and uneducated craftspeople who are in need of work.
Production of their textiles is particularly important to women, because it is not machinery or tool dependant and they are able to do much of the work in their homes, which allows them to plan their work around caring for children and household responsibilities.
It’s overall aim is to provide skills and training to people with no education and to promote Indian craftwork around the world.
Our recycled patchwork squares shoulder bag is handmade by Gopalas artisans. You can read more about Gopalas in our Fair Trade Producers section.
