The beautiful striped cloth is made on the backstrap loom, a technique that has been passed down for generations in Guatemala. The totes are then lined with recycled denim, made by shredding scraps and mixing it with un-dyed cotton to make it stronger. This process saves thousands of gallons of water; as we know, a pair of jeans uses up to 2300 gallons of water and a t-shirt can use up to 650 gallons of water. The wonderful technique behind these bags makes them both economically sustainable and eco-friendly!
