This is the answer to an effortless everyday bag. Our unique process of Upcycling uses a traditional Charkha & Handloom to weave a fabric from all the waste plastic that we've gathered. At first we collect waste plastic bags sanitize & sundried them. Then master artisans of Ecokaari manually cut plastic bags into strips. Then rolled on a traditional Charkha and woven into a fabric on a handloom. After woven into fabric it stitched in required designs to make products.
Gentle hand wash separately in cold water with mild/liquid detergents recommended.
