This stunning large Uzbekistan tapestry bag by Ruby Star Traders is a fun overnighter or carry all. Cotton tapestry fabric outer with leather base handles and trim. Zips completely closed at the top.

These fabrics/bags are all ethically sourced by Karin Gardiner from Ruby Star in India. They are handmade in Uzbekistan using original tapestries which originate from dowry quilts and special family made textiles.
The local women who normally do field work create these beautiful bags in local organised women’s workshops at night as a way of empowering local women and giving them another income stream and skill set.
They are then bought down through Pakistan into India under the local ethical trade agreement where Karin bids for the best designs and quality with her close Indian trading partner.
Dimensions - base 42cm x 18cm and 33cm in height.
