Style, strength and sustainability all in one beautiful tote. The Uttam Tote is ideal for travelling, long days at the beach or as an overnight bag. Available in three neutral colours - Natural, Charcoal or Earth - our latest tote is sure to compliment your outfit with it's natural woven texture. This is your answer to functional Fair Trade fashion this Summer!
The beautiful rustic exterior fabric of the Earth-coloured tote is a combination of naturally-dyed brown jute and natural jute. Lined with a soft hand-loomed natural cotton, the Uttam Tote is suitable for the carrying clothing. The strong handcrafted macrame handles are both sturdy and statement-making.
Featuring a unique texture, this tote has been crafted with care, using a combination of some very special techniques - natural dyeing, hand rolling jute (instead of spinning), hand weaving on backstrap looms, handwoven cotton lining, handcrafted macrame, and the final basket is sewn by women in a small production centre. A true work of art, the Uttam Tote is hand made – from start to finish – by fair trade artisans in three different communities in Bangladesh.
