The beautiful rustic exterior fabric of the Earth tote is a combination of naturally-dyed brown jute and natural jute. Lined with a soft hand-loomed natural organic cotton, the Uttam Tote is suitable for carrying clothing. The strong handcrafted macrame handles are both sturdy and statement-making.

Featuring a unique texture, this tote has been crafted with care, using a combination of some very special techniques - natural dyeing, hand rolling jute (instead of spinning), hand weaving on wooden backstrap looms, handwoven cotton lining, handcrafted macrame, while the final basket is sewn by women in a small production centre. A true work of art, the Uttam Tote is hand made from start to finish by fair trade artisans in three different communities in Bangladesh.
