|XL Black & White Riviera Bag 23 inches wide 17 inches tall and 5 inches deep|
Brought to us by Catstudio, the Riviera tote bags are made possible through a collaboration of Catstudio & a non-profit society in remote Southern India called Sabala, a voluntary organization dedicated to the Empowerment of Women and Children. Set up in 1986, SABALA is working with widows, destitutes, tribals, physically challenged girls and women and economically strained women. To provide sustainable livelihood, Sabala provides these women with skill development and design training, which teaches them to make these beautiful bags.
For the movie buffs out there, even Julia Roberts donned a bag of Sabala in her movie Eat, Pray, Love! (and I'm sure her tote is what attracted Javier Bardem to her . . .)
The bags are all hand woven and made from cotton and jute. Each has beautiful hand stitched edges and shoulder straps. We all know a new tote makes us feel good but these Riviera Tote bags can't help but make you feel really good for supporting such a worthwhile cause! Take a peek at some of the bags we are carrying at The Nest Egg including the XL Black & White bag shown above.
