I love the styling of these bags. They are so cool and also very practical.
UNESCO has identified the lack of citizenship as the main risk factor for becoming a victim of trafficking and exploitation. Our first partner center is a safe haven for girls from minority groups in northern Thailand. Our crossbody bags, were made with dignity by the staff and graduates.
- Made with Dignity in:
I'm a man, so one would not expect a review from me on a woman's product. But let me assure you... you cannot go wrong with this product! I purchased a couple of these on a whim for my daughters, who are 8 and 10 years old, thinking that they might find them fun. Boy was that thought understated! They have not only found them fun, they use them as a multipurpose carry-all during good portions of their week. These crossbody bags have become the carry books/bible/coloring pencils/etc. to church bag; the carry my music lesson and notebooks to music class bag; the carry my dolls and games to my friends house bag. With 6 months of use now, the bags have held up to all of the wear and tear that one could possibly imagine and STILL LOOK GREAT! The craftsmanship is immaculate and the sewing is so good that with all of the use they have gotten by my daughters, there is no evident pulling on any seams (and I've checked to be certain). My daughters school bags are in tatters after one season of use. These cross-body bags... they hold up to the daily grind! If you want a good looking multi-purpose bag/purse... look no further. I've been truly amazed!
The Crossbody Bag is a fabulous product. You will be amazed at how much fits in this bag; a small umbrella, a sweater and all your normal essentials. The fabric designs are lovely and the reversible feature is nice. I spilt make-up inside the bag and washed it in cold water on the gentle cycle, laying it flat to dry. The product came out perfectly clean, unwrinkled and the fabric remained soft. I love the product and the fact that I am helping to provide dignified employment for at-risk women.
I love the pink elephants bag. The pockets are so handy (especially the ones without a zipper - it fits my phone perfectly so I don't lose it amid all my other junk). I can fit a heck of a lot in there, too. I'd recommend washing your bag before you use it. I got caught in a horrible rainstorm before I'd washed mine, and the dye from the fabric stained some of my clothes. The bag is still vibrant, but the dye leaks, so wash it in cold by itself, hang it to dry, and you'll be all set! The button closure came undone on mine, but it'll be easily to sew back on. I think I was putting a lot of strain on it because I had a pillow in it... :)
Purchased as a gift. The design and pattern of the cross-=body bag is up-to-date as a fashion statement. The design and colors of the fabric is appropriate for women of all cultural backgrounds.
