These bags have been hand-knitted and crocheted by Russian women who have inculcated the age-long, Russian traditional knitting skills that have been passed down through generations. At Equal Hands, we work with independent Russian women consistent with our Code of Ethical Production to bring you these exquisite creations by researching sustainable materials, modern hardware upgrades, and ancestral techniques. In doing so, we attempt to contribute to their economic development, women empowerment, and environmental conservation.

Please allow up to 10-14 business days for production. We promise it's worth the wait. Want more customization? This item can be personalized. Ask us how.
