a weekend bag with style and substance.
i am currently in the throes of everyday handbag shopping and, of course, i am finding everything but. to wit: this handmade weekender bag by rising tide. while the style is beautiful, i also like it because it is made of reclaimed vintage kantha quilts from india that are sourced from a fair trade womens' cooperative in west bengal and suede that is used from animals that passed on from natural causes. you can purchase the bag at econscious market, a great site that not only offers information about the product, but about the vendor, too. the company also donate a minimum of 10% of every purchase to a featured nonprofit of your choice.
kantha weekender bag, $198 on sale.
