We wanted to create a “travel” pod for our products, however these bags needed to be aligned with our philosophies and core values. I searched the globe to find a company to make our bags so when I found Freeset I was blown away. Freeset not only made the bags I was looking for, they used 100% organic cotton and used environmentally friendly dyes in their screen printing.
What really touched me is that Freeset was created to support a community that is marked by extreme poverty and vulnerability. Thousands of women in the district of West Bengal, India, have been forced into a life of prostitution. With two daughters of my own I can’t imagine what that is like for parents to witness and families to endure.
Two remarkable women set up Freeset to bring a tangible difference to the women of the area, an opportunity to develop new skills (sewing and screen printing) and empower women to have a life free from the exploitation.
Freeset is a fair trade organisation, it helps women earn fair wages, get health and child care.
Our Travel Pod includes our cleanser, the amazing black rice scrub, an eye matrix cream and day moisturizer. The perfect set of travel companions. Enjoy and cherish this remarkable bag as it has been made by women who are gaining back control of their lives.
