Crochet Shopper Bag WAS £55 NOW £35
A quirky statement shopper or casual handbag, the MEL is hand crocheted with real leather handles.
Made from 100% sheep wool with real leather handles. Auraque only use azo-free dyes for their wool. Leather is sourced from a small family tannery in Kolkata and roadfreighted to Kathmandu in bulk, to be used for all their leather and suede products; all chemicals used in the process are contained and reprocessed within the water treatment facility on site.
Handmade by a small artisan workshop in Kathmandu. Meera developed their knit bag samples and co-ordinates the crochet/knit training. She distributes the yarn to the women who crochet the knitted bag panels at home, working around their family commitments and providing them with an income to help their families.
