Not Just A Shoe Bag – Pastel Pink

CWSG

$19.00

Shoe bag/gym sack with drawstring closure and a large zipper pocket. The pocket is big enough to hold an extra pair of socks or stockings, shoe shine and everything else you need for your shoes when traveling.

Most ladies’ size shoes + ankle boots fit comfortable in the shoe bag.

The length of the shoulder straps can be adjusted by moving the knot further up the strings on each side. Do not cut off the excess string, until you have checked that the new length is ok.

Since the shoe bag is made from upcycled fabric (leftover fabric from the garment factories), and since there are often only a few meters left of each fabric type, the fabric used for your shoe bag might differ from the shoe bag in the product photos. 

Material: 100% upcycled cotton

Color: Pastel pink with black butterfly embroidery in the corner

Dimensions: 16.5″ H x 15.3″ W (minor variations in size may occur)

Made in Cambodia

What is upcycled fabric?

Sometimes the garment factories order too much fabric, or a design gets cancelled resulting in piles of leftover fabrics. Traditionally, this leftover fabric ended up in landfills, but nowadays, you can find it on the local markets around Phnom Penh. By using this material to make new garment items, we prevent beautiful fabric from going to waste and contribute to a more sustainable garment production.

CWSG in Phnom Penh, Cambodia

CWSG (Cambodia Women’s Support Group) is a group of women in Phnom Penh, skilled in sewing, embroidery and design. The group was founded by Ky Kanary in 2014, with the purpose of providing the women in the group with a source of income from selling different kinds of beautiful, handmade products. Some of the women are skilled in sewing, while others excel in embroidery and design, and when developing new products to sell, they try to make the best use of the inherent talent in the group.
