Size: 24 x 34 cm
This small and lightweight backpack is handmade by the Thai tribal women who rely on their craft skills to provide a living for their families. It was made with beautiful batik material and has adjustable back stripes. It is certified Fair Trade, and we hope that it will make a perfect accessory and bring you much joy.
Batik is both an art and a craft, which is becoming more popular and well known in the West as a wonderfully creative medium. The art of decorating cloth in this way, using wax and dye, has been practised for centuries.
Note: it is a small backpack, will fit keys, wallet, phone and a few small items.
