Hobo in Leather/Hand-knitted Banana Yarn
Dimensions: H38cm W32cm D11cm
Handle Drop (gap between top edge of strap and top edge of handbag body): 45cm
This slouchy casual hobo handbag has a comfortable strap with hand-woven leather detail. On the front panel is a roomy and secure outside zip pocket with leather pull tab, as well as a pocket on the back body also. This style can be worn across the body for some customers, or comfortably on one shoulder; with easy access to the main zip opening of the bag. Antique brass base studs protect the reinforced base panel, and the d-ring tabs on either side, allow the bag to be pulled in or loosened depending on bag contents.
AURA QUE works with soft Buffalo leather that is produced in South Nepal as a by-product of the Nepalese food industry. The lining is woven on hand-looms in Kathmandu, and each bag has an inside zip pocket. Side panels hand-knitted from 100% natural banana fibre yarn that is produced sustainably from the pruned excess outer layers of the Banana tree after each fruit harvest in South Nepal.
Each AURA QUE design is brought to life in a Nepalese factory that employs local people, some affected by disabilities, providing an income for themselves and their families according to fair trade principles. AURA QUE products are individually hand crafted in Nepal, which may result in slight variations. The unique story behind each AURA QUE product enhances its charm!
