Carry an entirely unique piece of Moroccan artisan craftsmanship with an En Shalla tote bag!
Over the last few years, En Shalla have worked on a project embroidering recycled food bags in and outside Marrakech, Morocco. With the motto, "Don't waste, create & educate", they work with recycled plastic bags that would have originally been used to carry industrial quantities of rice, couscous, flour and other commodity foods.
Working closely with women’s groups, En Shalla are passionate about giving back to the community by preserving ancient embroidery and bag making techniques. Even better, it’s roomy enough to fit in all the daily essentials (plus a few extras).
The result: chic, durable and sustainable tote bags, supporting both recycling and craftsmanship in Morroco's rural communities.
