An estimated 767 million people live below the international poverty line of $1.90 a day. Each Parker Clay leather good is crafted at a growing production factory in Ethiopia which follows fair trade principles and pays a premium wage of 87% over the average. In a few short years they have gone from employing one artisan to over 50 full time artisans, sourcing premium supplies directly from rural farmers and traditional tanneries.

Your purchase today empowers communities in Ethiopia to thrive while giving you a premium product that supports your style and values.

A little bit of structure, a whole lot of style – meet the Bale Sling Bag. Named for the Bale Mountains of Ethiopia, home to stunning landscapes and rare wildlife, this sling-style, gender-neutral messenger bag is designed for everyday exploration and all-day comfort.

Handcrafted from full-grain Ethiopian leather, this unique bag features a durable, comfort-focused strap and two zippered pockets sized for your essentials.
