Organise, tidy, store and travel. Upcycled lorry curtain cube bags, in three useful sizes, fairly made by tailors in Malawi.
This Upcycled Lorry Curtain Cube Bag is in stunning blue with white and is a perfect size to toss in tools, make-up, your garden do-dads, or your "one night stay" gear.
These are truly useful, bags. The smaller bags are perfect for a pencil case, make-up bag, cable tidy bag or for holding your puncture repair kit. The largest will hold your muddy trainers, your workshop tools, or your arts and crafts supplies. Literally “Anything Goes”! We’ve used them when packing for holiday to keep luggage organised. You will wonder how you managed without these bags in your life!
Made from off-cuts of lorry curtain siding, that would otherwise have gone to UK landfill. The bags are super tough and completely washable. They each have a handle made from recycled inner tube and they close with a strong zip. Colours will vary slightly as they are made with recycled materials.
Good for you and good for the planet. How cool is that.
Medium size: 24cm x 13cm x11cm
Please note: Recycled materials may show flaws or signs of previous use, but are still perfectly strong.
Helping to end poverty in one of the poorest communities in the world. Currently employing 10 Malawian tailors full time, but with ambitions to grow this to a team of 100, they earn a good wage and can support their families, without any charity donations or handouts.
Cycle of Good is the latest initiative to join a hub of social enterprises created by the charity over the past ten years. Situated in Chilomoni Township, Malawi, the enterprises together employ 500 people who have trained and worked to create businesses that fund a vital children’s centre.
The centre provides early years care and family support to around 2000 vulnerable children at any one time. It’s a quiet revolution of skills building and economic growth in a country with no welfare state: if you don’t earn, you don’t eat. Cycle of Good builds on all of this amazing work to make something even more wonderful.
They now collect waste inner tubes and other products, ship them in their containers to Malawi and give them to the tailors who carefully craft useful and beautiful items.
They also carefully source other Malawian made items, especially when they are made from recycled and sustainable materials. They ship all these amazing products back to the UK where they sell them to lovely people like you!
The profits pay for them to send more containers to Malawi and all surpluses directly fund the work of the children’s centre. That is why they call it the Cycle of Good!
