Eco-Leather Black Tote

A sleek and versatile accessory, the Eco-Leather Black Tote is adjustable depending on how much you have to carry, making it perfect for travel. Eco-leather is crafted without using hazardous chemicals in the tanning process. Instead of azo dyes, formaldehyde and other substances, eco-leather is tanned using materials derived from sustainable tea bark extracts and waxes. This "vegetable tanning" was used in India in ancient times to tan leather. From our artisan partner group CRC Exports in India, which helps small, informally organized craft workshops develop into self-sustaining businesses.

Craft Resource Center (CRC) helps informally organized artisan groups to develop self-sustaining businesses. CRC seeks to develop economic self-sufficiency for a vulnerable segment of society through traditional handcrafting skills. CRC provides marketing, design, finance and exporting assistance to a large number of artisan groups across India. CRC also provides raw materials, production coordination between groups and additional training. CRC considers artisans more important than products. This concern for artisans translates into a broader commitment to help others within the CRC network. Because of CRC’s coordination of craft production between different artisan groups, artisans have a high level of connection and cooperation. Artisan groups have been able to work together in partnership in times of need. Ten Thousand Villages has purchased products from CRC since 1993.

Welcome to our global maker-to-market movement where, together with 20,000 artisans, we ignite social change. We create opportunities for individuals, families, and communities in developing countries to thrive through strong relationships, fair wages, safe working conditions, and sustainable practices.
