Hardworking upcycled denim and recycled saris made into kantha, combine to make this really versatile, lightweight, cross-body tote. The roomy interior has a slip pocket for small items and closes with a strong zip. The zipped outside pocket secures most handheld devices at 6″x4″ 15x10cm and the long cross-body strap, adjusted on a metal or coconut shell ring, ensures it can be worn easily over a coat. The beautiful textures and tones of this cross-body bag – along with its multi-purpose nature – make it a great every-day bag!
Kantha, meaning ‘rags’, is the ancient tradition of recycling well worn, vintage saris into beautiful throws for family use and special celebrations. Using a simple all over running stitch, 2 or 3 recycled saris are quilted together. The layers of soft, worn cotton give a wonderful vintage feel and look to every item made from this carefully crafted fabric.
