KORRISA Dobi Shoulder Tote
The KORISSA Dobi Shoulder Tote is the perfect bag for a day at the beach, a shopping trip or your next flight. KORISSA provides unique & purposeful handmade goods that are socially and environmentally responsible. This oversized bag has a 100% cotton lining with pockets to hold your cell phone & sunglasses. Sustainably handwoven by Fair Trade artisans in Bangladesh.
Approximately 15.5” tall with a 13.5” round bottom.
Due to the handcrafted nature, slight variation will occur in design, color and size. Bag may be steamed or ironed to remove wrinkles or pleats.
Wipe clean with a damp cloth, do not rub stains or spills from your bag as this may spread the stain and loosen the fibers.
Be sure to dry properly after water damage.
Jute fabric color can change and fade over time.
When you are done with the bag, donate if it's still in usable condition, if not follow these steps: Simply cut out the 100% cotton liner and cut into very small pieces, add to your compost pile (put in pick-up compost bin) or bury in your flower bed or garden. The pieces will help the soil maintain water and will biodegrade in 1 week to 5 months (depending on the size of the pieces). Add the jute bag to your compost pile or bury in your flowerbed or garden as it too will biodegrade in 1 to two years. Not into composting? Simply drop that jute bag into your recycle bin.
Loom.ist Turkish Towel
Toss this stunning 100% Turkish cotton towel in your tote as you head out for a day at the beach, pool, or a weekend trip. You’ll love the absorbency of this thin towel. The practical nature of the fabric allows it to dry both you and itself quickly. The silky, soft-touch of this lightweight towel is fabulous as a beach towel (does not hold sand), scarf, or sarong. Super portable, and the favorite carry-on of travelers.
Following a 150 year-old tradition, OEKO-TEX® certified fabric is free from harmful chemicals, washed in the Black Sea and dried on the quartz sand beach with hand-tied fringe. The Loom.ist collection is ethically conscious with production processes that ensure the utmost care and sustainable practices.
Turkish towels are different than cotton towels, but their care is simple. Follow these steps to keep your towel looking and feeling amazing.
Wash the Turkish towel before using. Pre-washing will create the most absorbency. For best results, soak the towel in cool water overnight. This will help the towel become more absorbent.
Use a gentle cycle on your washing machine and low heat on the dryer. Avoid fabric softeners and dryer sheets, wool dryer balls are the best option. And of course, avoid bleach!
Turkish towels air dry very quickly, so hang them to dry, which is always best for the planet.
