Bag It


For jaunts to now-nearby places like Thailand, Indonesia and Singapore, it's only fitting that my luggage have an ethnic flair! I love these weekenders made from Kantha, an embroidery that uses a running stitch to form, outline or enhance the design of textiles. The bags are handmade in India from recycled and cruelty free fabrics by artisans of a fair trade program.

...though maybe I really want one so I can ride shotgun with this world traveler.
