Carrying this classic messenger bag doesn't just make a fashion statement - it makes a socially conscious one, as well. Each army green canvas bag is handmade in Uganda, and features a plethora of pockets, an adjustable shoulder strap, a brown and gold printed cotton lining, two clip closures securing the flap front, and a tag bearing the name of the woman who made it, along with her biography. MEND
, the maker of these bags, is not a charity - MEND is a subdivision of Invisible Children that trains women who were former abducted child soldiers to be seamstresses, thus providing them with employment, and enabling them to support themselves and their families. So, sport this benevolent bag to help provide stability, and show your support for women in distressed regions of the world.
