Upcycled Tote Bag

£11.00 - £16.00

An upcycled tote bag is a beautiful way to carry all those extra essentials. Ours come with the added bonus that they are upcycled from repurposed sari chindis (fabric scraps), making them zero-waste products.

Produced by a social initiative in India that provide training opportunities to disadvantaged women, each upcycled tote bag purchase helps to empower underprivileged women with new tailoring skills. Skills able to transform their lives.

Small: 35 x 32cm
Large: 45 x 33 x 11cm (with gusset)

As these are upcycled, each tote bag is unique but you can choose a colour preference. To add a gift note for your upcycled tote bag, please just add ‘request’ in the order message.

If you are ordering more than one unit and would like a combination of colours please just add each one separately to your basket.

Alternatively, just add your preferences for quantities and colours to the order message!

Pri Pri turns preloved saris into children’s clothing, tote bags and home accessories, stitching together traditional Indian fabrics with western design. 

On a mission to reduce the staggering amount of fabric waste that ends up in landfill, no scrap goes to waste. Pri Pri gets creative with every last piece of sari material, resulting in beautifully unique products, from shimmering kids party dresses to spectacularly colourful rag wreaths

Upcycled with love and style, the saris are sourced via the founder’s personal contacts or in the markets of Mumbai, where reams of used but still perfectly wearable fabric ends up. 

Mumbai is also where the makers behind Pri Pri are based. They’re part of a programme run by Animedh Charitable Trust. This organisation helps underprivileged women by arming them with valuable skills – like sewing. The women train and become qualified while working on Pri Pri designs, sewing their way to sustainable, long-term jobs and a brighter future. 

So these garments and accessories spark ripples of positive change in more ways than one. They’re symbols of slow fashion and reducing our environmental impact. And they create social and economic change for marginalised communities. 

If you’re not a fan of wasteful packaging (who is?!), you’ll be pleased to see your Pri Pri pieces arrive in recyclable materials too. 

All that impact aside, Pri Pri’s collection is joyful to look at. Whichever pieces you buy, prepare to be bombarded with compliments over the designs and fabrics.
