Each Market Tote Bag is unique and now you have the chance to have a versatile handmade bag of your own! Made from up-cycled vintage cotton saris and lined with plastic from repurposed rice bags, this bag was handmade by a local Indian woman using the kantha stitch, which is an embroidery style that originated in West Bengal and is stitched into the very fabric of its culture. The repurposed rice bag lining makes the Market Tote Bag waterproof and very handy for carrying swim clothes, drinks, and makes a great beach and gym bag! So many uses for this product, we would love to see how you use yours by sending us a pic at firstname.lastname@example.org or posting a pic on our FB page, ReMade India. Please note that all items are made from previously worn saris and may have some imperfections like patches or typical wear and aging. These slight imperfections tell a part of the story and add to each one’s charm and uniqueness. One sari can make up to 3 market tote bags, so the pattern placement might differ on the bag you receive. It will be the exact same colors and pattern, but just might be laid out differently as far as where the designs are on the bag (top, bottom, etc...) You will receive the bag with the colors and design in the first image. See some of the faces you are helping through ordering this ReMade product by looking under the ‘Artisians’ tab on the website. Every ReMade product has a tag with the name of the lady who repurposed and hand stitched it written on it. With every purchase, you join us in helping to have their lives ReMade!
