The beautiful, handwoven bags are made entirely from materials recovered by the women of the community. After gathering, cleaning, and disinfecting the plastic bags, the artisans hand-weave them into vibrant totes with designs such as stripes, “tweed,” or a faux zebra print. Besides offering a source of income, $10 from every $50 bag sold goes back to the slum by way of projects that help with medical aid, relocation, and child sponsorship.

Each of the eight designs is named after a woman who made it—a simple yet effective way of connecting your purchase to the people it benefits the most.
