Wonderfully kitsch, super practical, Fair Trade and environment-friendly. Made by slum-dwelling women in Chennai, using recycled Bollywood film advertising billboards seen throughout the sub-continent, lined with beautiful kalamkari print cotton fabric. Roomy enough for books, laptop or tablet, with lunch on the side! One fully lined and zipped internal compartment, with an open external pocket on the back. The strong adjustable webbing handle is suitable for over-the-shoulder or hand-carrying in comfort.

Truly unique - each features a female Bollywood star, but images vary.

Stain-proof rexine material is weather-resistant and wipes clean.

Sorry, but requests for particular Bollywood personalities cannot be met.
