A durable but light briefcase with a variety of storage pockets for pens, papers, books and files, plus a secure key ring. Stylish yet eminently practical, it can be used as a briefcase, backpack or shoulder bag by changing the positions of the adjustable strap.
It also includes an ingenious back pocket that can be used to attach the briefcase to wheeled luggage handles when travelling. With strong zips, easy-opening but secure magnetic clasps, and made from a rugged hemp/cotton mix it will last a lifetime.
An age-old plant revival reduces toxic chemical use, rehabilitates soils and protects the food chain.
Hemp is now the height of fashion.

The New Internationalist is a world leader in communicating development, environmental and social justice issues. It is a publication designed to lift the consciousness of people around the world for a sustainable and peaceful future. Also in pursuit of an equal and just world, Amnesty International is proud to be associated with the New Internationalist.
I've always been profoundly impressed by the quality of its research and its writing and how readily accessible it makes otherwise complex world affairs. Each of its ten annual editions is a short course in something profound.
A little about Bhaktapur Craft Papers: Bhaktapur Craft Papers works with small-scale producers of lokta paper, to improve the quality of life of poor Nepali communities.
New Internationalist Australia is a member of the World Fair Trade Organization, which means we have to stock a percentage of Fair Trade products, and also adhere to Fair Trade practices ourselves. Great for supporting producers rights, and also for our staff.
