Hope Art’s tote bags are fun, practical and great for guys and girls alike. It’s an ideal alternative for students. They are designed to comfortably carry an iPad with extra room for a notebook, pens and wallets.
Each bag has two external front pockets useful to quickly access things like car keys, or a pen. The two small inside pockets are perfect for your phone and other small bits that usually end up in the bottom of your bag.
The colorful African print cotton fabric used to make the bags is commonly known in Zambia as ‘chetengies’ and are bought from our local market and small shops in town. Chetengies are (6,74″) 2m in length and are traditionally worn by women, by wrapping the material around themselves to form a skirt, or as a sling to carry their babies. There are hundreds of different chetengies available and we seldom find more than one chetengi with the same color print and pattern. We are only able to make 2 bags from each chetengi, so when you place your order and you refer to a certain bag in our catalogue, we will do our best to source the same or similar chetengi to your choice. Alternatively, just give us your color combination preferences. The actual item you receive will be a surprise and a unique piece that we feel sure you will love!
