Rice sacks get a second life as these bright and cheerful bags. Empty rice sacks that otherwise may have ended up in the streets or rivers of Kathmandu are collected by hand, cleaned, and transformed into these one-of-a-kind delights. Lined with 100% black cotton and strengthened with reinforced straps.  No two are ever alike.
