Items received will not be exactly what you see pictured, but will be in the color family of your choosing, because like a snowflake, each Sari Bari item is unique with it’s up-cycled sari fabric construction- so you get a one of a kind piece of freedom each time!

The Island Breeze series colors include shades of green, blue, and purple and variations on those colors. They are called cool colors because they evoke a feeling of water, trees, and night. They bring out a feeling of relaxation, calm, and reserve.

Sudara is partnering with fellow do-good brand, Sari Bari, to offer a curated collection of home goods and bags. Together, we are employing and training even more women who are at a high risk or survivors of sex trafficking.   

Sammana means dignity in Bengali and that’s exactly what this bag represents! We think this tote is pretty special, created with two saris, adding a little more color and texture (as if there was not enough). It’s got a wide body, big enough to carry everything you need for the day, including your laptop. Plus, it’s created with sturdy 100% cotton canvas, double organizer pockets, a zipper pocket to secure your valuables, magnetic button closure and durable woven cotton shoulder straps, with brass rivets on the handles.

Hand-stitched by Sari Bari Artisans and machine finished by another skilled woman who now has freedom, on the industrial sewing machine—undoubtedly, it’s got Heroic potential! Hand wash separately in cold water, tumble dry low.

  • Handcrafted in India
  • 100% cotton sari and canvas lined interior for structure and durability
  • Dimensions: 15"h x 19"w
  • Handle length measures 25" with a 12.5" rise
  • Due to the handmade nature of this product, the color and pattern of the item you receive may vary slightly from the product(s) shown.

Don’t forget to look inside your bag to find the name of the artisan who did the hand-stitching on your bag.

Made proudly in India by women working to remain free from sex slavery. Perfect for meaningful gifts or a little something for yourself.
