Object of My Affection: Rising Tide Fair Trade Weekender Bag
Posted Aug 23 2008 11:02pm
Happy Friday! In the spirit of Summer weekend trips to places near and far, I give you: The perfect Weekender bag. There are so many fab options, I had trouble picking just 3 to feature here. At $220, it's not the least expensive bag you'll ever own (or maybe it is - aren't you fancy!), but it might just be the most useful bag you'll ever own. Go ahead and try to pick your fave bag from the countless featured on the website - pack a snack, you'll be there for hours. Here's what Rising Tide Fair Trade has to say about their bags:
Our bags are created from repurposed vintage quilts and cruelty free leather (from naturally deceased animals) and canvas.
Rather than using a system of mass production, our bags are produced in a women’s cooperative, which has a lower impact on the environment.
Our bags are made one at a time by individuals paid a fair wage and treated with dignity and respect.
