In chunky cotton dhaka fabric, the PYARO is a roomy handbag featuring cotton lining, inside zip pocket, zip closure and leather handle and shoulder straps.
The fine woven dhaka fabric is sourced from a local distributor in Kathmandu who sells these geometric designs made by rural weavers in Nepal. The fabrics are usually made in batches by one weaver, making them difficult to reproduce - which makes each design unique. Leather is sourced from a small family tannery in Kolkata and road-freighted to Kathmandu in bulk. All chemicals used in the process are contained and reprocessed within the water treatment facility on site.
Dimensions: L37 x W43 x D10cm.

Care instructions: Items with leather trim or straps are not washable. Please spot clean and treat with care.
