We are thrilled to be stocking Soruka! And here’s why…
Soruka make the most wonderfully colourful and stylish bags and purses from upcycled leather & cloth remnants. Perfect for eclecticats who want to be a little different – each piece is totally unique – from their little zip coin purses to crossbody bags and ruck-sacs. All ethically made & fairly traded – What’s not to LOVE!
FAIR TRADE All bags and purses are handmade in India in small artisan workshops who might otherwise struggle in competition with mass produced goods. Soruka’s partnership with them creates jobs in low income environments and preserves generational craftsmanship. All employees are over 18yrs of age, trained and paid above minimum wage requirements.
HAND MADE Every bag and purse is cut and stitched by skilled, caring artisans. Little machinery is used, keeping energy consumption low. Designs are timeless and each bag is a lovingly made unique piece of leather art.
FAIR PRICE Because of the direct working relationship with producers there are minimal ‘middleman’ costs involved meaning fewer mark ups on the way to you the customer, resulting in a fair price.
RECYCLED MATERIALS Aimed at a zero waste policy and reducing landfill & energy consumption all Soruka bags are made from scraps left over – factory waste. As Soruka utilize ‘dead stock’ traditionally thrown away by manufacturers each and every bag is unique whilst at the same time contributing to a more sustainable, better future.
