Size: Suitable for 14″ laptop
Material: Upcycled jute and denim fabric, with polyester and foam inner lining to keep your laptop safe
Note: As with all upcycled products, the colours are dependent on the available material. So your bag may differ slightly from what is shown here, but the design and overall colour will always be the same.
This bag is made by underprivileged women from urban slums of Hyderabad who are trained in tailoring, hand embroidery and financial literacy. These useful skills give the women access to a larger social and occupational network, and provides them an opportunity to develop a sustainable livelihood in a safe environment, improve their quality of life, and build a sense of agency.
By choosing a product from Kriti Social Initiatives, you have a two-fold impact. On the social front, you directly contribute to improving the lives and livelihoods of poor urban women – and by extension, of their entire household – by creating a market for their skills. Since the product is upcycled from discarded fabrics, it keeps usable material from ending up as garbage and polluting the environment, thereby also reducing the need for virgin resources. By opting for upcycled products in the things we use daily, we allow the Earth to heal a little!
