EVERY BAG UNIQUELY YOURS
Every upcycled bag is one-of-a-kind! As we collect used materials, it is simply not possible to replicate the same fabrics over and over. Patterns and shapes are all a little bit different. Expect slight imperfections. Between fabric, the seamstress who made it, the family who received the rice, and you, every bag has a different story. Give life. Make this bag uniquely yours!
UPCYCLED = ECO-FRIENDLY
Handmade from used jute rice bags, the bags in the Recycled Collection are made from plant-based fibers, are biodegradable, and eco-friendly. Our recycled bags have the natural smell of burlap. We keep discarded rice bags out of the landfills and give them new life! Buying this bag helps preserve the earth's resources! Good karma. Good vibes.
WHAT YOU ARE GIVING
Your purchase of this bag provides 1 kilo (2.2 lbs) of rice to a family in need in India. Indians typically eat rice three meals per day. 1 kilo will last the average family (of 4 people) almost 2 days. We give away 20 kilos of rice at a time. This typically gives families over a month of rice! Buying this bag feeds families!
SUPPORT FAIR TRADE
We love our employees! We treat them right. That is why we adhere to fair trade practices. We also train women to sew. We ask you to try to appreciate the uniqueness slight differences in size and quality which may be caused by our seamstresses in training. Buying our bags provides jobs!
