As you know, all our products here on PawZaar help rescue pets, helping to sponsor homeless pets as they wait for forever homes.
But our RESCUE bag promotes two types of rescue: that of people and of pets. We've partnered with a company in Kolkata, India that rescues women from trafficking situations, provides them a safe place to live, and teaches them to sew. These women, most the victims of human trafficking or driven by poverty into life on the streets, are trained and paid a fair wage as well as given both health insurance and a pension plan. For many, it's the first time in their lives they have lived a safe, secure life.
This tote bag is produced using certified organic cotton, a deep black signifying the dark times the women and the homeless pets that this bag assists once faced. Our globe and paw logo is hand silkscreened by the women on the bag in vibrant blue to symbolize the sunny times ahead.
The tote is lined with the colorful fabric used to make the Sari, the Indian draping garment that women wear with grace and beauty. Each bag has a different type of interior fabric so no two bags are alike!
Every purchase of the RESCUE bag not only helps employ a woman in India but also helps sponsor shelter pets!
A handy bag to hold your must-haves, your own cosmetics or your dog essentials, this organic cotton canvas bag is screenprinted on both sides using water-based, eco-friendly inks that will hold up to your most challenging adventures.
Each bag is handmade for us by a fair trade cooperative in India that rescues women from trafficking situations. Lined in recycled sari fabric as colorful as India itself, each bag helps benefit the women who make it.
