Each bag takes four hours to embroider. The embroidery techniques used are over a thousand years old, they are based on the practises of the Kathiawadi desert nomads and are being kept alive by the Gujarati artisans of St Mary’s Mahila Shikshan Kendra, one of our fair trade partners in India.

Please note this is for one bag and it will be luck of the draw which design you receive.
