Whether it’s wandering your local farmers’ market or exploring an exotic artisan bazaar halfway across the world, the Fair Trade Jute Collection is the perfect travel companion for your journey, every day.
At ZINK, we believe that quality of life is a human right. That’s why we have partnered with an NGO (non-government organization) in South Asia to ensure that every bag in our Jute Collection is made responsibly. Dedicated to a just and poverty-free world, our partner promotes local leadership and entrepreneurship among women artisans to establish a sustainable economy and nourish a self-reliant and gender-balanced society.
