Organic Cotton Bags for Schools, Workplaces, Churches, Clubs …

These Eco friendly and fairly traded bags can be designed by your students for your students (or by your employees or members). Vandanamu [click here for more details] will mail your designs to a village in Tamil Nadu, South India where they are printed and sewn by Sathya Handicrafts which employs women survivors of the tsunami.


Prices depend on style and number of colours used  and there’s a quantity discount. They range from £1-10 for shopping bags printed in one colour on one side, supplied in large quantities, to £1-75 for multicoloured shoulder bags suppied in small quantities. The minimum order is for 100 bags.
