Yet another great product re-purposed from waste materials.
These crossover body bags are made from upcycled coffee sacks that have been donated to by coffee roaster supporters, then handcrafted in Malawi by fairly paid tailors.
This bag will work nicely for your wild swim/picnic. It is perfect for traipsing the hills in search of that elusive lake.
Works equally well as a stylish bag for everyday or evening, be sure to turn heads as these bags are truly unique! Keep your phone, keys and money safely strapped across you.
Additional small pocket made of inner tube on the back to keep snug against your body. Keep your lose change for the car park or ice cream in The delightful Chuma- penny purse- and 'Bob's your uncle'.
The long upcycled inner tube strap means the bag sits perfectly across your body, we pride ourselves on using all parts of the coffee sacks, so each bag will be totally unique.
Some will be completely plain and some will have the original coffee sack print. These upcycled bags tell a great story and support a great cause.

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. 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.
They now collect used 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 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!
This has been much admired, I love it , really different.
