Favela Crossbody Satchel - Cobalt Red

Regular price $ 64.00

This bag is hand-crocheted from repurposed plastic!  Widely used by seaweed farmers in the Southern Philippines, this plastic is used for its strength and durability to bind and identify seaweed harvests underwater. This bag’s handles are also made with repurposed carabiners and nylon paracord remnants that would have otherwise been discarded.  A collaborative effort between VERLOOP and the talented artisans from the Filipino seaside community we sourced from, each bag can take as much as one day to produce by hand. This collaboration enables artisans to earn competitive wages along with the means to work at home. 

  • Hand-crocheted mini satchel made with repurposed plastic and macrame paracord straps
  • Features mini carabiner
  • Can be worn as a crossbody or shoulder bag
  • No two bags are alike.
