Fair trade and sustainable practices start from the bottom up. That is why Rubyzaar pays a liveable wage to all people who contribute to the creation of our products. The hides used in all of our bags are sourced from an organic free-range farm in Northern Thailand. The natural tanning process uses plant or smoke to cure the leather. Each bag is hand tooled by artisans in our collective. Your purchase today not only helps to keep traditional crafts alive, but also supports local farmers, tanners and artisans in Thailand through fair-trade and sustainable practices. Rubyzaar is sweatshop-free and fabulous. Wear it with pride.
