Description

Light green unlined Malabar cotton tote bag

Malabar has been using cotton from the Kerala region of India since it began nearly 20 years ago. Handloom cotton from the tropical monsoon lands of South India is produced in the most traditional of ways.

It is dyed by hand using the most stable vat dyes available to the region and the high quality of the dyeing is attributed to the region receiving the brunt of the monsoon rains. The cotton is then woven on hand looms by some of the most skilled weavers in India, without the use of machines, using time-honoured techniques that have been handed down from generation to generation.

Malabar cotton hand loom fabrics are sourced from small co-operatives which are run ethically and provide vital support for the small communities and villages where the mills are located.

Dimensions:
Width 50 cm (19.5 in)
Length 33 cm on the middle (13 in)
Depth 16 cm (6.5 in)

Handle drop length around 35 cm (13.5 in)

IMPORTANT:
I send this item WITHOUT a tracking number to keep the shipping cost low.

If you would like to have a tracking number, please contact me BEFORE purchase!

Shipped on time, nicely packed, but most importantly, the bag is beautiful. The leather is soft yet strong, and it's well made. I ordered it as a wedding gift for my daughter (it will be stocked with things like tissues, make-up remover wipes, a bottle of water, snacks, and whatever else I think of). I really want to order one for myself too.

This bag is everything I hoped it would be and more. Great style and so beautifully made. It makes me happy whenever I wear it and it reminds me of Kata who is a complete joy to work with. Every single detail, inside and out, is so well done. Thank you!
