WAR AND THE ART OF MAKING BAGS
Technology has made us immediate witnesses to the destruction of war and the impact on the lives of people.
We believe that creativity is the antithesis of war and that each day we should ask the question of everything we do - “How can we be more creative with this?”
We have the pleasure of working with beautiful fabrics, the left-overs from costume departments of film and tv, opera, ballet and theatre. The creative people in the costume studios allow the fabrics a continued life by sharing it with us, rather than taking the easy route of just piling it all up to be sent to landfill.
The fabric is used to make bags. Each one an artistic creation. One of a kind. Just like the women who are making them. Women who have had to leave their home countries to make a new life.
If you want to be part of being on the other side of war by helping sponsor a woman as she learns new skills in her new country, please feel welcome to use Paypal Giving where there are no fees for you or for Dirty Girls which is a registered charity.

Love the bags you make.

Where can a person buy one of these bags? Thanks.

Dirty Girls Bags, made from fabrics leftover from costume making for film and TV productions, are not just fun ... for every bag sold 5 trees are planted in the Dirty Girls "forest" by Tree Sisters.
So far 2500 trees have been planted on behalf of Dirty Girls.
