$21.99 USD

This classy travel bag is made from cotton textiles from India. It's large and spacious, and can be used for toiletries, makeup, jewelry, and so much more. It's the perfect addition to your travel collection, and is an excellent gift idea for the men in your life!

This is a handmade item, stitched by an underprivileged woman in India. I personally design all of our products and source the materials, and pay the women above fair wages for their handiwork. My goal is to uplift and empower our women so they can support the education of their children and break the cycle of poverty that has plagued their community for many generations.

Although some of our bags can safely be machine washed, we recommend dry cleaning our products, due to the delicate nature of some of the fabrics used.

Made With a Purpose

For over 8 years, 6 women were working out of a sewing center converted from a classroom inside a school in northern India. They earned a living by sewing uniforms for the children and some freelance work to help make ends meet. When I met them 5 years ago, I fell in love with their warm and loving personalities and partnered with them to sew our products. Today, we have moved into a new sewing facility, and the women are producing high-quality, hand stitched products that will make you smile. The products are bright and colorful, stitched with love, and help empower and uplift a mother. 

Our vision is to create an environment where women feel financially safe and secure so they are able to build a better, brighter future for themselves, their children, their families and the community. We empower women by increasing self-worth and independence, and ultimately encourage secondary education for children, reduce child marriage rates, and empower families to get out of the cycle of poverty.

Thank you for supporting Made with a Purpose!
