The Vancouver Market bag is the result of an Old Faithful Shop and Apolis collaboration. A few years ago, Apolis partnered with Saidpur Enterprises: a project established in Bangladesh to help mothers of malnourished children find temporary employment producing jute handicrafts . The operation quickly grew and now support many artisans for a large fair trade export which provide literacy classes, training on nutrition, women's legal rights, educational awareness and finance.
Our special edition bag seeks to further a Local + Global initiative. By purchasing this bag and using it locally we can provide aid and support to families who would not receive these benefits otherwise. It's simple: Commerce with a conscience.
Crafted with 100% Natural Golden Jute Fibre, the bag is waterproof lined and topped with vegetable dyed leather handles reinforced by antique nickel rivets.
