The bag was stitched and assembled from market fabric in a small woman-owned workshop in New Delhi by a number of women including Anita. The workshop was established twenty years ago to preserve the dying arts of India, and providing regular work to home workers – women in India who traditionally work irregularly from their home to earn income while also retaining responsibility for their work at home. The workshop’s directors also run and fund a girls school that offers free tuition and midday meals. Each bag provided 1 day of fair work to women in India. The sale of each bag will provide a day of life skills mentoring for adolescent indigenous Mayan girls through the Catrinka Girls Project.
The woman behind the bag: Anita has worked for more than 15 years in a small woman-owned workshop in New Delhi, where she specializes in bag accessories, including this bag’s pompom. She has three children: her daughter works from home, a son is in school and another son is an accountant.
