Support refugees and asylum seekers in Greece by buying this sustainable, upcycled canvas bag. The tote bag for Afghanistan is made from hardwearing upcycled tent canvas. The residents of Oinofyta Refugee Camp used to live in tents and now that they are housed inside they are reclaiming materials from around the camp to make handicrafts.

 

The Oinofyta Wares projects enables refugees to put their skills to use and make productive use of their time. Many of our tailors have years of experience as tailors in Afghanistan, Iran and Pakistan.

 

This over the shoulder, reusable bag was designed by Qais, an asylum seeker from Afghanistan and experienced tailor. Each ethical tote bag is handmade and unique so you can expect your item to vary from the picture. The side panels are made from varying clothing donations, as is the Afghan flag motif. The wording says Oinofyta in English, Greek and Farsi and is hand-machined in the colour of the tailor’s choice.

 

Each bag is made from 100% reclaimed materials. The body of the bag is made from tent canvas, the bottom of the bag is reinforced with tent tarpaulin, the bag is lined with inner tent lining and embellishments utilise clothing donations.

 

Bag dimension: 29cm x 28cm Strap: 34cm
