Gabriel Shopper


Item: 338534

The Vivienne Westwood Ethical Fashion Initiative Bags are “Handmade with love” in Nairobi, and are produced in collaboration with the International Trade Centre (ITC), a joint body of the United Nations (UN) and the World Trade Organisation (WTO), supporting the work of thousands of women micro-producers from marginalized African communities. The ITC empowers informal manufacturers and craftspeople to enter the international value chain, providing an income for some of the poorest people in the world. This promotes the growth of sustainable business in place of aid dependency and creates stability among these impoverished communities. This is not charity, this is work.
Produced in canvas, this shopper is hand painted with flowers and skulls, beautifully lined with recycled men’s shirts. With one internal zip compartment, and a four press stud fastening; the bag can be transformed from a bucket style bag to a roomier shopper. With the small handles measuring 32cm, the long navy webbed handles measure 56cm, this piece is finished with the handmade brass Orb to the front. Due to the nature of the recycled fabrics used in the making of this case they will have some marks, from their former life, and slight variations in colour from the image shown.
Orbs are made by hand, variations in their appearance is down to the artisan nature of these pieces and should be seen for its craftsmanship rather than a defect.
