This back sack is hand-crafted on foot powered treadle sewing machines by the Engalaweni women’s group. It is similar to the sports sacks used by children across America, except our sacks are made with a double layer of fabric for extra durability. The inside layer of the bag is made out of the 100% Malawian cotton canvas used in our reusable cloth shopping bags. The outside layer is made out of colorful African print material.
The Back Sack has draw strings to close the top of the bag that also serve as shoulder straps to hold the bag on the back. A small pocket has been placed on the outside of the bag. The bag dimensions are approximately 14 inches by 20 inches.
