Fabric Shopper Bag with shweshwe



Lead by example with this trendy upcycled Shweshwe style multi purpose bag!

Our upcycled fabric shopping “bags for life” are made from offcuts of iconic South African “Shweshwe” style fabric and unbleached cotton.

These lightweight  and eye catching bags can be easily folded up and kept on hand for easy use. The bags are machine washable and can be reused over and over again.

Reusable shopping bags are a perfect example of simple actions that can have a big impact.

The environmental impacts of single use plastic have led to new legislation and plastic levies to reduce plastic waste across Africa and indeed the world. Commendably, many South African retailers now have ‘no plastic bag’ policies or promote the use of reusable bags. Consumers are also becoming more aware of their personal environmental impacts and are making efforts to go “Zero Waste”.

At the same time, the fashion and textile industry is responsible for producing 10% of greenhouse gas emissions. People often don’t consider the environmental impacts of fabric production and waste – which often contain toxins – further polluting the environment when dumped.

By using our upcycled fabric shopping bags you can reduce single use plastic production and waste, as well as fabric waste to landfill and the lead on impacts these processes have.

These upcycled shopping bags make great eco-friendly gifts or gift bags and can be used for a variety of purposes.

Due to the upcycled nature of the materials, each one is unique. However, should you have custom  design or color requirements please contact us so we can meet your needs.

*Please note all prices shown on the site are on an indication basis and subject to size, design and quantity.
