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.

MORE ITEMS TO CONSIDER
The shoulder bag is small enough to fit comfortably under your arm and is designed to carry all your essentials (purse, lipstick, sunglasses, phone, etc) all day long.
You should regularly move your bag from your left hand to your right hand or shoulder. Putting too much weight on one side of the body for a long period of time causes the spine to bend, causing symptoms of back pain.
Perhaps the first difference between a handbag and a shoulder bag is the size, and that's what people think of first when talking about it. Another difference is in the number of straps, and although a shoulder bag can sometimes have two, it usually has one, while a handbag has two.
