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.

Commendations

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.

The editors of Utne Reader - when announcing the New Internationalist as the winner of the General Excellence Award for magazines with a circulation over 50,000 - global Independent Press Awards - 1998.

I have subscribed to New Internationalist for over 25 years, and can vouch for its fearless, high quality reporting of the real issues all over the world. And lovely items in their shop, too!

The New Internationalist magazine is not being screwed or manipulated by any dominant ideological group or any dominant corporate interest. Therefore the New Internationalist editorial is genuinely the New Internationalist editorial.
