Fair Trade Guaranteed Product, handmade in Cambodia 

About the Materials 

This product is made from a combination of recycled cement bags that are collected from construction sites around Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia. The bags are cut into patterns, washed by hand, hung out to dry and then sewn into awesome products. They are combined with 100% cotton remnant textile, waste from the fast fashion garment factories, the largest export industry in Cambodia. Where possible, upcycled hardware (zips etc) are also salvaged from garment factory waste and incorporated into our designs. 

Note: Due to the recycled nature of this product, there may be variations in the print.
