The tote bag for Urgun is a hardwearing practical fabric bag that is perfect for use as an over the shoulder handbag or to replace plastic bags on shopping trips. Be more eco conscious and purchase this 100% upcycled tote handbag.


At Oinofyta Refugee Camp in Greece, residents use to live in tents. They are now housed indoors, but are making great use of the old torn and dirty tents by scrubbing them clean and turning them into these eco-friendly shopping bags. Taking a reusable cloth bag shopping with you is a great way to avoid plastic waste and by choosing this bag, you will also be helping to support refugees and asylum seekers in Greece trying to establish independent and productive lives.


This ethical tote bag features a felt palm tree motif with the words Oinofyta in Greek and Farsi. The canvas bag has a reinforced bottom made from tent tarpaulin and is lined with inner tent lining. Colours and designs may vary as each upcycled tote bag is handmade by one of our refugee tailors utilising reused and upcycled fabrics.


Bag dimension: 29cm x 30cm Strap: 31cm
