Can you guess where I was when I bought these reusable bags? Can you?
Okay, it’s obvious: Chicago. But I found some beautiful natural fiber reusable bags on my trip to the Windy City and wanted to share them with you because A: they are super strong, B: they are beautiful and C: they are a product that I believe help us all be a better Global Citizen.
The tag on the bag says it all. But the hang tag reads this:
We hope you enjoy your handcrafted market bag. The perfect carrier for trips to the farmers’ market or grocery store with a 100% natural golden jute fiber harvested in Bangladesh, waterproof lining, a personal inside pocket, and natural vegetable dyed leather straps. We look forward to sharing the detailed results of this project employing 75 women in Bangladesh.
The bag is QUITE sturdy. boxy and roomy. It stands upright with nothing in it.
Now, when you think natural fiber bag, you think it’ll fall apart very quickly. But the quality and construction of this bag—from the handles to the reinforced fabric to the stitching—is quite incredible. I liked it so much, I bought two!
And here’s the other side of the bag.
Here’s a professional shot showing how handsome the bag is….
