The woman behind the bag (updated 2014/15):

We work with a workshop in New Delhi to construct and assemble our Indian collection, using market fabrics. The workshop we partnered with is woman-owned and was established in 1996 with the motive of reviving the dying arts of India, and providing regular work to home workers. The workshop’s directors also
run and fund a girls school that offers free tuition and midday meals. Lalita (pictured) has worked in the workshop for two years. She has five children: three girls, one of whom stays at home with her children, another works with her in the workshop, and a third is in school. One of her boys is in school and the other works in a garment manufacturing company.
