Buy a beautiful, unique tote made by disadvantaged Cambodian women. Perfect for travel, these "Netty Bags" are repurposed plastic netting and transformed into colorful, functional bags. Highly individual with a look unlike anything I've seen. I love the texture. I am using the Island Tote in pink with a black strap for carrying daily essentials and my piano book. A MacBook Air will fit neatly inside too.
Ethically made out of recycled materials, the Netty bags are not only beautiful, and lightweight, and give disadvantaged women jobs but the materials are better utilized as a purse than as potential pollution in our seas. Every bag purchased will help provide mosquito nets to families in need.
To buy a Netty Bag go to Net Effect Traders and find a wide selection of handcrafted bags that look happy and perfect for summer.
