If you’re looking for some eco-friendly Mother’s Day gift ideas that are really unique, look no further. I want to take just a few minutes today to highlight some of the new fair trade bags we have in for spring, because they’re really beautiful and would make a perfect gift for Moms.
These are also bags you can buy with a clear conscience. All of our bags are Fair Trade made by women artisans in India and Nepal. And, many of them use recycled fabrics like silk, and sustainable fabric like hemp.
Fair Trade Bag #1: Krewel Work Bag
Our Krewel work bag is hand stitched by a working women’s co-op in Kashmire. I use a very similar bag myself (the Krewel work bag with shoulder strap) and have to tell you that these pictures just don’t do these bags justice. The colors are vibrant, and the stitching is solid and beautifully intricate.
Fair Trade Bag #2: Hemp and Kashmir Wool Handbag
Our Hemp and Kashmir Wool handbag would make a wonderfully elegant gift for Mother’s Day. Each bag is hand woven, and every single one of them are different. The design of this bag is really unique, and it’s definitely one of my favorites!
Fair Trade Bag #3: Modern Eco Hemp Bag
This awesome hemp bag is part of our Modern Eco line, which means it’s one of the highest quality bags we offer. The design is contemporary and conservative, which means it would be perfect to take out on the town or daily to work.
Fair Trade Bag #4: Cashmere and Silk Bag
Our Cashmere and Silk Ladies bag is one of the only bags we offer not made from hemp. This bag is made from cotton, cashmere, and recycled silk, and it’s a vibrantly luxurious bag!
Another neat thing about this bag is that it always looks a little different. We never know what our silk is going to look like (since it’s recycled!) so it’s always a bit of a surprise to see how they come out. But every bag does look similar to this one.
Fair Trade Bag #5: Blue and Natural Aari Hemp Shoulder Bag
Our lovely little Aari Hemp Shoulder bag is hand stitched with a beautiful blue floral design. This is another bag that’s in our Modern Eco line, which means it’s made from the highest quality hemp. This would be a great bag to gift for Mother’s Day because it’s quietly beautiful, at least that’s how I like to think of it!
I know I’m a bit biased, but I love all the bags we carry hear at Earth Divas. We’ve done our best to keep these bags as affordable as possible, and I think any of them would make a wonderfully thoughtful gifts for our Moms.
It’s also a great gift because every purchase helps support other Moms in India and Nepal. Almost all of our artisans are women, and we pay around 30% above local wages. All of our profits are returned to the artists at the end of the year in the form of a bonus check, which means that the more bags we sell, the more artisans we can help out of poverty.
This is a great feeling!
