Create a fashionable bag from recyclable materials, practicing sewing skills with a seamstress to produce a waterproof design featuring your own personal touches.
What to Expect
Decide how you want your bag to look, avoiding the mass-manufactured product that everyone else has. Make use of by-products of development—mostly cement bags—to sew a handbag that's waterproof, durable, biodegradable, and yes, fashionable. Variations on these bags are available at night markets, but your bag can feature whatever quirky details you'd like to add, distinguishing it from any other handbag.
Learn sewing skills useful for the rest of your life. The material from the cement bags is waterproof, durable, and has both hipster appeal and functionality in equal amounts. The village seamstresses are happy to help you pull it all together.
