This is great as an alternative to a briefcase or as a regular backpack for everyday use. Features two roomy internal compartments - one padded to protect a laptop; a large zipped external pocket with pockets for phone, cards etc; and two small side pockets - one zipped and with an eyelet for feeding MP3 player headphones through to the outside.
Padded adjustable shoulder straps make it very comfortable with heavy loads. Made from a durable hemp/cotton mix, with strong zips, this bag will be going strong long after cheap alternatives have fallen apart.
An age-old plant revival reduces toxic chemical use, rehabilitates soils and protects the food chain.
I believe that hemp is going to be the fibre of choice in both the home furnishing and fashion industries.
Hemp is now the height of fashion.
I cannot do without your caring, enlightening publication.
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.
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.
