About The Wangari
Size and Fit
Vibrant and incredibly capable, this generously sized east-west tote has the space and strength to carry all of your belongings within its colorful confines. Made from lightweight water-resistant nylon, The Wangari features a durable, wipe-clean exterior. The interior is roomy, with interior zip and patch pockets, as well as 2 exterior pockets. The front woven panel reminds us of how interconnected we are as a community and that our actions can positively impact others, with the 4 qualities of gravitas (strength, kindness, resilience, fearlessness) making up the center diamond.
Proudly made in New York City’s Garment District, each tote provides a NYC seamstress with 3 hours of work. 100% of the cost to produce this bag goes directly to our community, touching 58 people’s lives: fabric cutters and seamstresses (32%), fabric and trim stores (30%), patternmakers and designers (20%), warehouse and office staff (18%).
“There are opportunities in the most difficult moments. I'm very conscious of the fact that you can't do it alone. It's teamwork. When you do it alone you run the risk that when you are no longer there nobody else will do it.” – Wangari Maathai
