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.
Baladarshan is a Fair Trade Organisation marketing the products of Chennai slum women working through the SPEED foundation.
The New Internationalist magazine has won the Media Peace Prize, awarded for an outstanding contribution to world peace and development.
I want to congratulate you on the fantastic job you do with New Internationalist Australia. New Internationalist is about the only remaining forum of journalistic integrity and genuine humanity that is commonly available in Australia. I'm also very impressed with your New Internationalist shop. The products are fantastic and speak of the quality and dedication of their manufacturers. The stories attached to the products are very inspiring and uplifting. Please keep up the great work.
I've always been profoundly impressed by the quality of its research and its writing and how readily accessible it makes otherwise complex world affairs. Each of its ten annual editions is a short course in something profound.
Proud to help... read you cover to cover
New Internationalist supports Fair Trade producers like The Chetna Organic Cotton Project. Fair Trade promotes a fair wage and fair working conditions, encouraging developing world producers to help themselves.
A little about The Chetna Organic Cotton Project: Say NO to pesticides that poison three million people every year, and help make trade fairer at the same time.
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.
