Rising Tide Fair Trade
Sure to become an everyday favorite, this eco-friendly hobo boasts an oversized bucket shape, great for traveling abroad, going to the market or packed up for the gym. This one-of-a-kind bag is handcrafted by fair-trade Indian artisans from a unique vintage sari, intricately stitched together with fine kantha embroidery. The base and straps are made with beautiful, cruelty-free leather and finished with brass hardware. Inside, you'll find a fun black-and-white lining with two open pockets and a zippered one as well. Magnetic-close top.
In Rising Tide Fair Trade, founders and friends Virginia Dooley and Nicole Jones successfully combined their obsessions with travel, exotic textiles and the belief in giving back to the global community by uniting fashion and sustainability. Inspired by the prevalence of fair-trade goods in the U.K. and the lack of such products in the U.S., the pair started the company in 2004, employing artisans in developing countries who earn a fair wage. The resulting collections boast the highest quality craftsmanship and most eye-catching textiles from across the globe.
