Veja presents two great looking bags for Fall 2010. The Mochila Rucksack features leather detailing and three plastic clasp fastened external pockets, while the Acacia Canvas Bag features a biscuit leather strap, handles and zip pulls with two external pockets. The cotton used is also of interest.
The lining and canvas is made from organic cotton grown by a co-operative of producers in the Northeast of Brazil. The cotton is grown in the agro-ecology method which bans the use of chemicals and pesticides. The leather is tanned with acacia extracts; a natural, non-polluting tannin.The bags are hand crafted and assembled in an atelier that respects the workers’ rights.
Oki-Ni is taking pre-orders on these beauties.
