This tote has places to go! With its sturdy woven black and white striped cotton exterior shell, outer zipper pocket, and ample room for stashing your stuff or your kids', this bag is such a versatile item to own. The handiwork behind this tote has already helped many lives because it was handwoven and sewn by artisans with disabilities and their dependents in India who were affected by leprosy. Thus, ensuring fair wages, leadership training, job skills, and programs to build their self-sufficiency in a culture that otherwise shuns such individuals makes your purchase of this tote have life-changing effects. Thank you.
