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.
New Internationalist is an ongoing education and a monthly reminder of our common humanity. A wonderful readable guide to the social and political forces that shape our world...With its hard-hitting coverage of world affairs, evocative first-person essays, sweeping exposes of such topics as land mines and the geopolitics of blue jeans, the New Internationalist offers a consistently unique and important perspective on global culture.
Appreciate your attention to detail and as always regard NI as one of the best sources of info on social-welfare, justice and environmental issues on a global scale. Keeps it all in perspective, which becomes increasingly harder to do in the info-overload age!
A little about Global Mamas: Global Mamas is a Fair Trade cooperative in Ghana, West Africa, supporting the sustainable development of women artisans producing fair trade products
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.
