bamboula ltd. which is selling this bag via Madwell, is (and I quote, from their site) "...a Pennsylvania-based company [that] has been importing beautifully handcrafted products from Africa using fair-trade practices that directly benefit the artisans". Brilliant!
*Oh and don't think it's lost on me that I've done 2 posts in one day featuring Madewell items...a company I have been less than enthusiastic about in the past. Ooops! More than happy to admit when I'm wrong...and boy, was I :)
