These everyday totes are the first collaboration between Huaywasi and our parent organization, The Light and Leadership Initiative (LLI)! LLI is dedicated to improving access to quality education in Huaycan, Peru and we believe in its power to create opportunities, form leaders and transform lives. Simply put, we believe that education is everything.
100% of profits from Huaywasi are reinvested into LLI so we can continue to provide free education to Huaycan families. Made of durable canvas, these versatile totes are perfect for running errands, going to the beach, or whatever summer activity you have planned!
Cleaning Instructions: Spot clean with a damp cloth.
The Huaywasi Difference
This tote bag was lovingly handmade by Herminia, and took over 3 hours to complete. 23% of the final cost was attributed to labor, given directly back to the artisan. To compare, fast fashion garment workers are paid on average just 3% of what the final retail price of the garment would be.
