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.
I believe that hemp is going to be the fibre of choice in both the home furnishing and fashion industries.
The New Internationalist magazine is not being screwed or manipulated by any dominant ideological group or any dominant corporate interest. Therefore the New Internationalist editorial is genuinely the New Internationalist editorial.
I do enjoy your magazine - it provides a good balance to a lot of the right-wing / conservative and pro-big-business-dominated media.
New Internatioanlist supports Fair Trade producers like The Equitable Marketing Association. Fair Trade promotes a fair wage and fair working conditions, encouraging developing world producers to help themselves.
A little about The Equitable Marketing Association: The scarves made for the Equitable Marketing Association are produced in Murshidabad, Bengal, India.
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.
