The story behind these bags is truly great. These bags are fair trade and are made by women in India who have escaped prostitution and poverty, thanks to an organization called Freeset. Freeset helps women trapped in the sex trade in Kolkata, India by offering them employment and therefore empowering them. It is a fair trade operation in the business of freedom.

Freeset originated after a nave move from New Zealand found Kerry & Annie Hilton and their family in the center of the red light district, and their eyes opened to a world of hopeless women in need of an income alternative. In 2001 Freeset humbly entered the scene with 20 brave women who dared to leave the sex trade behind for the hope and dignity offered to them by a couple of strangers.

Today more than 150 women have made the same choice to make the journey to FREEDOM.

At wages double to that of comparable employment, along with health insurance, pension plans, education opportunities, and child care, the women not only are equipped to change their own lives, but to bring freedom to their families as well.

Profits for Freeset are turned into funds to further grow the business to bring more women the opportunity of a life beyond the streets.

What is jute?
Coined the 'golden fiber, jute is one of the strongest vegetable fibers found in nature, and is how some 4 million farmers in India earn their living. It is a rain-fed crop with little need for fertilizer or pesticides. Twinned with water based dyes, the result is a biodegradable, earth friendly product. The jute is sourced locally and is 100% bio-degradable and therefore, environmentally-friendly. Jute fibres can also be recycled.

How do I care for my jute bag?
To clean your jute bag lightly sponging is recommended.
