Eco-friendly and biodegradable bag-for-life made from offcuts
A delightful multicoloured brocade shopper with 2 straps/ handles, lined with royal blue fabric. Perfect for folding and carrying in a handbag.
This bag has been created using the leftover off-cuts from a fabric factory – by repurposing this scrap fabric, our artisans are saving these gorgeous textiles from going into a landfill!
Brocade fabrics are woven on draw looms, taking much longer than many other textiles due to the intricate nature of the technique, and the years of practice it often takes for artisans to develop their skills. The brocade designs often add a thickness and sturdiness to the fabric that is absent in other design as the pattern is woven into the fabric itself instead of being added on top. The painstaking effort, traditional significance, and elaborate designs that brocade fabric often has all contribute to these products looking beautiful and sophisticated.

Our Mission: "To improve the livelihoods of disadvantaged people in developing countries, benefiting local community projects and keeping alive traditional skills that would otherwise be lost."
Shared Earth's policy is to provide quality, design-led products, not just to those who are already aware of Fair Trade principles. With Fair Trade sales showing no sign of slowing, more and more employment is being provided for artisans in developing countries, many of who would otherwise be out of work. At a time when global conflict seems also on the increase, Shared Earth's partnerships with producers are an invaluable way of building bridges, showing that people can work together for mutual benefit, no matter what their race, religion or culture.
