Crane’s Country Store and Apolis came together to create this custom market bag with our 130th Anniversary logo. A leather tag says, Apolis – Crane’s Store, with the name of the Apolis Project and factory code between the leather hand grip.
In the interior pocket of the bag, you’ll find a card that details the project along with info on the local artisans who crafted your market bag. The market bag is designed to carry over 100 pounds. We tested this in the store by having Shane stand in the bag while two not so young men grabbed a bag handle each and picked her up. Yes, the market bag did just fine, and Shane is still walking.
This bag is resilient and reusable, so you can help keep single-use bags out of landfills; plus, it’s made of natural jute fiber, which generates more oxygen than any other Bangladeshi crop.
Your purchase helps break a poverty cycle. The female artisans who handcraft your bag receive Fair Trade wages, annual profit dividends, and a retirement fund; read Forbes.com‘s article on how this approach is changing people’s lives.
