Handspun cotton khadi with indigo and other vegan-friendly plant dyed cottons, combine to make this lightweight, unlined drawstring bag. The zipped outside pocket secures most handheld devices at 6.5″ 17cm square and the strong drawstring cords close the bag securely. The beautiful textures, tones and useful size of this drawstring backpack make it a great daypack.
The blocks used to create these beautiful wax resist batik designs are skillfully carved by local craftsmen. Families have earned their living at this craft for generations and fair trade practices help them continue this tradition for their livelihood.
Khadi is the deceptively simple handspun, handwoven cotton made famous by Gandhi. Soft to the touch yet strong and hardwearing, khadi is the cotton fabric worn from ancient times til today by people from all walks of life … the ultimate equality Gandhi so longed for.

The rich colours emerging from beautiful indigo plants, tree branches, seeds and more bring a deep vibrancy to these quality, hand-dyed fabrics. Natural dyes however, do vary slightly in colour with each dye batch, so the fabric for your order will come from a single dye batch each time.
