With a press stud and zip fastening, the colour of the stitching and material used may vary. This is due to the recycled nature of these items, complementing their intrinsic value. Handmade in Kenya, this bag is made from recycled materials by marginalized communities of women, with the support of the International Trade Centre's Ethical Fashion Program of the United Nations. The Ethical Fashion Program supports the work of over 7000 women who live in conditions of extreme poverty but who have a strong desire to improve their lives. Through the programme's extensive network, some of the poorest people in the world now have access to a job and income that subsequently benefits the entire community. All women involved in Vivienne Westwood's Ethical Fashion Africa collection are empowered by the pride they take in their work and new skills learnt.
