Bundubags [1] makes innovative, totally recycled [2] bags with a core belief that lives can be changed by good design. Bundubags began with a creative idea, a love of contemporary African design and a desire to support African women. Handwoven using traditional African weaving techniques, each bag is made from recycled cargo strapping. The project is based in the Alexandra township on the outskirts of Johannesburg South Africa, and it now employs 40 women, all of whom earn a sustainable income.
