Handcrafted Kantha Toiletries Bag

$24.95

This remarkably beautiful Zippered Toiletries Bag is constructed from up-cycled Indian Saris!

Working with up cycled traditional materials, these women Artisans in East India make these incredibly artistic bags out of Saris that would ordinarily just be thrown away. This beautiful, handcrafted Toiletries Bag is then decorated by hand with Kantha stitching, which is their regional specialty.

The fashioning of these bags provide needed income for these artisans, allowing them to provide a better life for their families.

This bag can be used to carry makeup, brushes or larger toiletries, like when traveling - or any small items you want to keep together in one place. This one has a water-resistant plastic lining on the interior, which gives the bag a longer life. Handmade in India by skilled artisans.

  • Zip-top closure

  • Spot clean
  • Measurements: 5"h x 10"w x 5"d

NOTE: Two of the photos show both sizes of this bag, so you can see the difference between them. This listing is for the LARGER of the two bags.
