A perfect companion to hold all your everyday essentials – keys, cash, lipstick, phone and more! Or use it as a make-up bag.
The thick cotton exterior was handloomed on a traditional Panipat jacquard loom. It is finished with a swingy suede leather tassels, soft cotton lining and an interior slit pocket that easily fits a smart phone and more.
The 3,000 year old historic city of Panipat in North India, famously called “the city of weavers” is home to thousands of artisans. The weavers here have mastered the skill of weaving thick cotton and jute yarn into one of our favorite home and bag textiles. The thick weave holds up well to wear and tear, and yet it has a comfy soft hand feel to it. Its a labor-intensive process that often requires several iterations on a loom followed by hand-knotting and embroidery.

About the Designer:
Textiles have been handmade In India for thousands of years. Artists there transform natural cotton, silk and wool into things of beauty using highly intricate techniques of dyeing, weaving, and embroidery. Bloom & Give's creative inspiration comes from discovering these heirloom traditions and carefully reinterpreting them to make contemporary products for everyday life.
Bloom & Give are deeply invested in their artisan communities and fair trade policies. Their suppliers are thoroughly vetted and visited several times a year, with special attention paid to areas including safe working conditions, exclusion of child labor, fair wages, non-discrimination, freedom of employment, and right to an association (union). Bloom & Give only work with suppliers that demonstrate pride in the quality of their work, and share their views on societal and workplace behavior. Prices and payment terms are never negotiated with suppliers.
10% of every Bloom & Give purchase goes directly to girls education programs in India. Each of these programs targets a specific obstacle in each community that prevents girls from going to school.
