Sammana means dignity in Bengali and that’s exactly what this bag represents! We think this tote is pretty special, created with two saris, adding a little more color and texture. It’s got a wide body, big enough to carry everything you need for the day, including your laptop. Plus, it’s created with sturdy 100% cotton canvas, double organizer pockets, a zipper pocket to secure your valuables, magnetic button closure and durable woven cotton shoulder straps, with brass rivets on the handles.

Hand-stitched by Sari Bari Artisans and machine finished by another skilled woman who now has freedom, on the industrial sewing machine—undoubtedly, it’s got Heroic potential! Made in India.

Any variations or irregularities are part of authentic, handmade production.

Why We Love It

We love the versatility of this sturdy but feminine tote - perfect for a sunny afternoon at the farmer's market or a stylish carryall for a day at the park with the kids.  It's as brilliantly colorful as you are.

The Story

The loving hands that created this piece belong to a woman who has been rescued from the sex trafficking trade in India.  She now receives a fair wage, medical care, and school support for her children.  She lives in Kolkutta and celebrates her annual "freedom birthday."  Your purchase participates in her freedom and in opportunities to free other women.  

Care Instructions
