Meet the Market Bag

Say hello to this adorable market bag

It’s perfect for quick adventures, farmers’ market expeditions, picnics, and toting around town. Featuring soft handles and a detachable strap for all types of carry, a tough and spill-proof inner lining, and a natural look that goes well with everything.

Oh, and would you believe the bag can hold up to 100 pounds? Now that’s a lot of farmers’ market veggies!

The front says “Tranquility du Jour” in our signature font and the back has the seal of authenticity for the Bangladesh Project. Learn more about it below.

Did you know that your purchase helps break a poverty cycle? The mothers who handcraft your bag receive Fair Trade wages, annual profit dividends, and a retirement fund to help them achieve their dreams thanks to the Bangladesh Project.

Location: Saidpur, Bangladesh
Factory Code: BAN-LAT33.7099/LON90.4071
Employees: 200+

What’s the story behind the factory? Following the 1971 war that established Bangladesh and brought with it poverty and disease, Saidpur Enterprises began in 1976 as a project to help the mothers of malnourished children with employment producing jute handicrafts and now supports artisans selling for a larger fair trade export market. They also provide literary classes, training on nutrition, women’s legal rights, educational awareness and finance.

Here I am in Paris after a farmers’ market jaunt toting another bag that my friend Carol loaned me.
