1. Product Description:
“Your bag is made by independent women working from home and in self-help groups, from marginalized community”
As a part of our business model, we employ women from marginalized communities who are motivated to work for earning an additional income to support their families. These women are a part of self-help groups, and also others who are separately trained by us in our own workshop until they are able to meet our standards. They are then able to independently work from their home, which enables them to simultaneously handle their family responsibilities too.
A sling is the most common requirement for all our customers, and are among our best-selling products. The brisk bag is one of the most stylish and unique among the sling collection, since it features a natural jeans pocket on the front. The sling is secured by a zip at the top, while there is one pocket each on the outside and inside too. As always, we believe that longevity of the bag is of utmost importance. The zippers are sourced from YKK, while the stitching has been calibrated for providing extra strength. Thus, be rest assured that the bag can carry more weight, and can last longer than you imagine!
The inner part of the bag gets its fresh look due to the presence of post-industrial lining material.
To take care of the hygiene requirements, all the material that enters our workshop is industrially washed in a rigorous manner. In addition, our production process also ensures that the bag looks fresh and equivalent to a virgin product.
Ideal usage: All-purpose use
