Jute Utility Tote - Kinfolk & Apolis Partnership March 18 2013

Half Hitch is excited to offer this unique and functional Jute Utility Tote bag that is the result of a wise design partnership between Apolis Global and the lifestyle magazine Kinfolk.  It is manufactured in Saidpur, Bangladesh by a female artisan co-operative that is committed to producing change in the garment industry in Bangladesh by providing workers with fair wages, freedom of association, accountability, and transparency.  The artisans enjoy a high degree of autonomy and their children often accompany them to work.  They use their earnings to provide clean food, shelter and education for their families.

The multi-pocket design makes for a functional bag suitable for use in the garden, for a picnic, as a tool sac, diaper bag, or daily work tote.  Finished in California and equipped with a durable wipe-able lining and natural vegetable-dyed leather straps reinforced by antique nickel rivets.
