Tree of Life Applique Bag
These are messenger bags with symbolic, hand appliquéd motifs on the front flap. This particular series is comprised of the Tree of Life. It is a quilted bag with a big pocket inside, made by artisans in India. They use ORGANIC, unbleached and un-dyed cotton, making this bag environmentally friendly and giving it a rustic appeal.
The series is made by an all-female cooperative in the draught-affected Marwar region of West Rajasthan, India. This cooperative is made of 272 women actively practicing this art. The artisans are distributed over the region in various villages. Women from far villages come once a week to the cooperative office, submit their products and collect more raw materials to take back to their homes and work on them. Profits from this art help in the overall development of the group. This region now has medical centers providing basic health services, electricity produced from solar energy, evening schools for kids and vocational colleges for women. Thank you for your support!
