Our organic hemp & cotton backpacks are versatile, durable, and uniquely fashionable. Perfect for everyday use for school, office, or outdoors, the lined and padded main compartment is spacious and includes a laptop compartment in back. Two additional compartments allow for easy storage of wallets, pens, and other daily needs. The fully lined and padded straps are adjustable and hold up to 5kg (11lbs). High quality zipper and padded back for extra comfort. Two cotton side pockets with elastic tops hold your water bottles or travel mug.
This backpack is completely natural and sustainable, and after a few years of use it can be composted in less than a year instead of being thrown in a landfill alongside synthetic backpacks that take 1200 years to decompose!
Local Women’s Handicrafts is a fair trade textiles and handicrafts collective based in Kathmandu. All of our products are handmade and ethically produced, providing fair wages and safe working conditions for the local Nepalese women who make them. We seek to empower and educate disadvantaged women by providing them with training and skills to support themselves.
Our organization is working hard to eradicate sweatshop problems as soon as possible. Everyday, lives are lost due to this unnecessary suffering.
By buying our products, you’re not just purchasing beautiful, handmade, and unique items, you’re also helping us educate women with skills that will allow them to support themselves and work in a happy and healthy environment.
Because our products are handmade from ecological materials, we recommend you wash them in cold to tepid water and allow them to dry flat. All our products are handcrafted with a love for craft and tradition, which makes each product truly unique. The products may differ slightly from the products from the shown images with regard to color, size or pattern.
