Vintage Kantha All Purpose Pouch Bag
Used as a cloth makeup bag or a pencil case, the vintage fabric is impressively finished in traditional Kantha style and is evocative of times past. Designs and colours are assorted, making every item beautifully unique.
Our supplier supports the owner of the business who produces these all purpose washbags since she bravely set up her own small artisan workshop 15 years or so ago after losing her job when her previous employer ran into difficulties. They support 35 full time positions with more on contract work according to demand. Employee benefits and working conditions are good and wages are above minimum wage. The business gives as much work as possible to workers from the disadvantaged sections of Jaipur society, particularly to the slum areas where the really disadvantaged struggle to find well paid work. They print most fabrics by hand and specialise in environmentally friendly techniques and fabrics, including traditional hand block printing and wonderful accessories made from recycled fabrics.
