Start small, dream big, change lives -- that's the way Global Girlfriend founder Stacey Edgar harnessed the power of fair trade to help women in poverty help themselves. Handmade by women rescued from sex traffickers in Calcutta, our durable tote bag tells the story of the journey to freedom. Working with Freeset Bags, a fair trade group, these women artisans earn a living wage and have the opportunity to become literate.

I ordered the magenta bag. The color is vibrant! Size is good, not too big, not too small. Have gotten a couple compliments on the bag already. There are no pockets on the inside, and it's lined with black nylon material. It definitely brightens up an outfit. Would recommend!

Very cute gift. A little smaller then I had hoped but I was still pleased and happy with the quality.
