La Dolce Vita Bag

Handmade from jute, known as the ‘golden fibre’ of Bangladesh; it is 100% plant based and it has great flexibility and strength.  In fact these bags can carry up to 14 kilos!  This “macrame” hand technique relies entirely on our women’s expertise. They work in their own homes fitting in with family life, the jute plant is harvested by hand using centuries old methods.  This project strives to help overcome poverty and improve the women’s social standing.  They now have access to free medical care and schools through this dynamic collaboration.  They are paid directly which gives them independence and status, empowering them to make decisions within the family.  A large percentage are educating their daughters up to sixth form and some are going to university.
