"THE MAMAS" HAND-PAINTED CROSSBODY BAG
FAIR TRADE - UGANDA
Measuring 10" x 11" - this hand-painted bag is created in Nawansega, Uganda.
This artist is one of just a few men that work with Project Lydia. He was chosen because he was in such need to support his family. He had just gotten married and had a new baby! They are now living very comfortably with his work thru Project Lydia.
After the paintings are completed - the canvasses are gathered and are taken to the village where all of the women sew the bags on treadle sewing machines.
fyi - these bags were 'stress tested' and put thru a washer! They came out perfect - no running, fading or peeling! However, it is really recommended that they be hand washed
