Our Tianguis Bags are more than a simple bag for life.
These beautifully hand woven bags are made with plastic by ex-offenders who are rehabilitating.
Our Tianguis Bags became fashionable a few years ago as part of a social initiative to support prisoners in the state of Jalisco. The idea was to teach prisoners how to make crafts and sell them so they could send money to their families and learn skills to support themselves outside of prison.
The initiative was so successful that it has now been replicated to support single mothers, seniors and people in vulnerable conditions.
Each bag can take many hours of work and every piece is unique.
Our Tianguis Bags are ideal for going shopping, to the gym or to replace your backpack. Take them to camping. They are especially perfect for the beach or the local pool - just take them everywhere!
