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 Independent Press Awards are selected by the editors of Utne Reader magazine to 'honour independent efforts that provide bold, innovative, thought-provoking alternatives to mass media fare.' The New Internationalist magazine won the inaugural 1989 award for International Coverage.
Since then, the magazine has won the award for 'Best International Coverage' another eight times, most recently in 2013. In the year 2000 the New Internationalist also won the highly valued readers' poll.
New Internationalist products are always of high quality. I love receiving them.
New Internationalist supports Fair Trade producers like Mahaguthi Craft with a Conscience. Fair Trade promotes a fair wage and fair working conditions, encouraging developing world producers to help themselves.
A little about Mahaguthi Craft with a Conscience: Mahaguthi Craft supports the development of micro-enterprises and helps disadvantaged producers improve their quality of life in Nepal.
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.
