With sunny days in sight, we’re ecstatic to offer an early glimpse into our latest Box of Style. Soon we’ll reveal its contents in all their glory, but up first is a peek at spring’s hero item: a striking, sustainably produced black and white carryall by Tribe Alive, handmade with love by female artisans in India. “Without meaningful employment these women could have fallen into the sex trade epidemic which runs rampant in the communities we work,” shares Tribe Alive founder Carly Burson. This bag provided invaluable skills training and fair wages to its creators, making it even more special to carry for festival season or on the daily.

The Big Reveal

We teamed up with Tribe Alive, a fair-trade accessory label that supports independent artisans in developing countries, to create a striking and versatile handbag perfect for festival season. Valued at $200, the black and white carryall is made of foot-loomed fabric and cognac brown leather and produced on a small-batch scale to ensure the highest quality.

Tribe Alive x The Zoe Report

Our partnership with Tribe Alive yielded a beautiful handbag while providing five months of employment for more than 150 Indian artisan partners in three cities. From the weavers in Panipat to master tailors and leather workers in Delhi to the logistics team in Jaipur, this bag positively impacted every link of the supply chain. That's truly a wow factor.

Carry It Everywhere

With double top handles, a cross-body strap and a neutral motif, this graphic bag transitions smoothly from a workweek staple to a weekend gym bag or farmer's market tote. Come summer, it'll stow all your beach essentials.
