These one-of-a-kind upcycled, colourful zipper pouches were lovingly handmade by the skilled artisans at our partner women's workshop in Kathmandu, Nepal. Each pouch purchased from this listing includes a large zipper pouch made from a recycled rice sack, in various shades of red, white, yellow, and black.
Each one is unique, made from upcycled rice sacks (the rice sacks are from Nepal and India), so each design is unique. Bright colours, bold prints, Hindi or Nepali script, and even cooking instructions make each of these pouches truly one-of-a-kind. Each recycled rice sack pouch has a high quality YKK coloured zipper to secure the items you keep inside. The inside of each pouch is lined with sari or upcycled cotton fabric.
The pouches are strong, and each outer surface can be wiped clean with a wet cloth. These bags are great for storing brushes, pens, pencils, cosmetics, school supplies, loose cash, coins or receipts, or anything else you fancy.
Our rice sack pouches make excellent ethical, sustainable gifts, and are brilliant for Secret Santa gifts, stocking fillers, or any other occasion!
As these bags have had a previous life they may have slight marks and imperfections.
IMPORTANT NOTE: the pouches from this collection are made from upcycled materials! This means they are all similar but not exactly the same. Each pouch purchased will be chosen at random; if you have a preference, please leave a note at checkout and we will do our best to accommodate your request, where possible - THANK YOU!
