For your next event, why not present a customized delegate bag that has everyone talking?
Different fabrics and textiles are creatively employed by makers groups: recycled tire tubes, organic cotton canvas, felt from recycled plastic bottles, upcycled pop tabs, denim, cork, upcycled rice bags, and third plastic. Each maker group adds their signature touch to turn their bag into a conversation piece.
Vendors partners teach skills and create employment, often for women and young people. Handicrafts are produced using locally available materials, native implements and solid craftsmanship, and artisans are sustained by the income they are earning.
Each textile has a story of its own to tell – organic cotton, felt from recycled plastic bottles, fast-growing jute, recycled cement bags and rice bags, water bottle labels, and many more.
