Looking for a great value ethical shopping tote or book bag?  Then look no further. The totebag for Shingan is a recycled fabric handbag that is perfect for any ethical shopping trip so that you can avoid using wasteful plastic bags.


This bag was designed by a refugee artisan, Qais, who has over ten years of experience working as a tailor in Afghanistan. The main body of the bag is sturdy and hard wearing as it is made from upcycled tent canvas. Nearly all of our tailors lived in tents when the first arrived in Greece and the bags are steeped in history from Oinofyta refugee camp. These bags are made entirely from upcycled fabrics, with the pocket design coming from unusable jean donations.


Each over the shoulder bag was handmade by a refugee or asylum seeker resident of Oinofyta refugee camp. Many of our talented crafts men and women worked as tailors before travelling to Greece, but others learned their skills whilst training with Oinofyta Wares.


Due to the upcycled nature of these canvas bags, each bag is unique with different upcycled materials composing the overall design. The should handbag’s lining is made from upcycled tent lining.


Bag dimension: 27cm x 32cm Strap: 31cm
