Regular price£49.00
/
The monochrome mix Caha backpack is made from a thick, heavyweight cotton which consists of black and natural undyed yarn woven together on a traditional handloom. The result is an uneven texture that can disguise a bit of the rough and tumble of everyday use! It has adjustable shoulder straps, a drawcord opening and is spacious enough for a standard laptop so works well for school or the office.

Handmade by skilled craftspeople at a small Nepalese WFTO workshop affiliated with the Nepal Leprosy Trust who employ marginalised people, giving them opportunities through work.

Approximately 34cm wide x 40cm deep.

Brass offers superior recyclability and overall environmental advantages as it can be recycled an infinite number of times with no loss in properties or performance.

AURA QUE have worked with the team since 2006 developing new products, improving skills and providing equipment for the workshop.

About the Brand
AURA QUE was founded in 2008 by Laura Queening, from which the name AURA QUE was taken. Laura lived in Nepal for several years, working directly with producers developing new product ideas as well as organising production runs. She worked with a workshop in Bhaktapur that employed local women who worked flexible hours near their homes enabling them to earn an income around their family commitments.

Laura has been working with the same fair trade producers for over 10 years, but now that she is living in Hastings, she visits Kathmandu for a few months every year to source new materials, sample new designs, maintain quality control and catch up with old friends!
