The fabric was hand-printed in Australia then beautifully crafted by our fair trade partners in Cambodia.The artists are paid a royalty fee for every metre printed.

Fair Trade: #whomadeyourbag – Mr Run Cheak and his wife make the small and large messenger bags. They have been working for social enterprise Kravan House for more than 15 years. Mr Run Cheak was a farmer who stepped on a landmine in 1993. At Kravan House he retrained as an artisan which has given him good steady income and he has become a master craftsman.

Care Instructions: Dry cleaning recommended. Some of our customers wash their bags by hand or on a gentle machine cycle.

Please note that each bag is unique and the placement of the fabric design is different and wonderful on each item.

Fabric: If you love this fabric, lengths of hand printed fabric can be purchased direct from Injalak Arts’ online shop.
