Fair-Trade, India This bright and joyful Yellow Ikat Drop in Bag features juco, a cotton and jute weave fabric, and eco‒leather. Eco‒leather is crafted without using hazardous chemicals in the tanning process. Instead of azo dyes, formaldehyde and other substances, eco‒leather is tanned using materials derived from sustainable tea bark extracts and waxes. This "vegetable tanning" was used in India in ancient times to tan leather.
