If you take your cycling holidays very seriously or you're planning to pedal around the country for charity, you'll probably want something more state-of-the-art than these, but if you just want to gear up for a two-wheeler picnic with friends or a day at the market, these uber-kitsch godly bicycle panniers are pretty cool and will certainly turn heads.
Made from waterproof rexine, recycled from Indian billboard posters, each set of panniers features two large pockets lined with cotton. They're roomy enough for a shared picnic or a day's shopping, and one side includes a padded section for when you're off to school or work and need to replace 'bread, cheese and wine' or 'market goodies' with somewhat more prosaaic 'laptop' and 'work files'. The set attaches to bicycle/pannier racks up to 15 cm wide using velcro straps, and includes a reinforced eyelet for securing the panniers to the rack, and a convenient carry handle,
Two pockets, 35 x 25 x 10 cm each, with rain-proof covering flaps also secured by velcro.
Handmade by artisans from the slums of Chennai, working with Baladarshan.
Note: Each pannier set features two different deities. Requests for any particular deity or deities may be in the lap of the gods
Baladarshan is a Fair Trade Organisation marketing the products of Chennai slum women working through the SPEED foundation.

A little about Asha Handicrafts: Asha Handicrafts provides the security of markets to small scale artisan workshops around India, like ANSA, the soapnut harvesters in Tamil Nadu.
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.
