I’m finally doing this! *rocks out a happy dance*
Last December, when Christine told me about the Ethical Christmas Night Market that Generation 414 was going to be a part of while I was in Melbourne, I knew that was where I needed to be!
Generation 414 is a social enterprise offering organic, ethical and fair trade items handmade by survivors of trafficking. They provide dignified employment and personal development opportunities to women who seek an alternative to the sex industry.
I always have lots of fun during the Rainbow Bake Sales, where I get to meet different types of people and sharing the cause. Being at the ethical Christmas night market felt like I was back in the zone! I had such an amazing time manning the stall and connecting with like-minded people!
She then gifted me with the Forever Bag – which is now a personal staple for me! It’s my go-to Doraemon bag now (it can fit all my nonsense lol and isn’t heavy!), especially since I have a tendency to dump everything and anything in my bag! I know I’ll definitely be using it in the upcoming exam season when I’ll be lugging exam papers around. What makes it even dearer to me is that it was intricately handmade in freedom by survivors of sex-trafficking in Kolkata, India. A bag after my heart, this one.
I recently connected with Christine again when she made a short trip back to Singapore, and I’m beyond excited to announce that I’m opening up bulk orders for the bag to be shipped to Singapore!
Originally priced at AUD65 (~SGD68) with an additional shipping cost of AUD30, I’m pleased to be bringing it in at SGD$55, inclusive of shipping and postage!
There are FIVE colours you may choose from. Your sari pattern will differ, as every gorgeous recycled saris is lovingly hand-picked from a Kolkata market, making the Forever Bag as unique as it is special.
Featuring 100% organic cotton canvas and a large quilted sari pocket, this bag is a stylish carry-all. Lined with organic charcoal-colored cotton, it offers a smaller zipped pocket to secure your valuables.
It makes a perfect gift for your mothers, sisters and girlfriends too! (My mum’s been dropping hints to get one too. :P)
The pre-order will close on 26 April 2017 and the bags are expected to arrive about 2-3 weeks after.
This pre-order is in partnership with Generation 414. (Head over to https://generation414.com/ to find out more)
