Description

We thought deeply about how to best design this linen washing bag for laundry during your travels. The bottom is double lined linen for extra strength and circular so it can easily sit on the ground and be stuffed. The drawstring ties the bag at the top and has loops to hang the bag up on doors, railings or between tree branches. The back of the bag includes an extra loop which is fastened to a coconut button for ease. Loop it off the button and you can hang it on a hook or similar. This should cover every situation!

The laundry bag includes a good sized pocket at the front that’s ideal for your washing powders, coins, kindle and phone when you head down to do the wash. You can also pop in your delicates instead so they sit ready seperately to cycle in your wash bag.

We make our own coconut buttons from discarded coconut shells in the village, and pressed oil at the centre and provide you with a set of spares to extend the life of this bag easily if needed. They also give the bag a beautiful, natural feel (none of that plastic look!).

This bag is ethically handmade at our little studio in rural Cambodia using recovered linens redirected from landfill.

Fabric
Our linen laundry wash bags are made from recycled linens. Our fabric is redirected from landfill in order to reduce our environmental impact. Instead of using new (virgin) materials, we collect fabrics that would otherwise have been burned or found their way to landfill. New materials take an enormous amount of resources to produce so we prefer to use fabrics that are already in existence and would have gone to waste. These fabrics exist from an over-supply to businesses, wrong orders, unused due to changes etc. We collect these and use them for our products.

Label
Our labels were made from the off-cuts we save whilst cutting our products so you may receive a product with this made from hemp or linen. We have since transitioned to 100% cotton labels and now use those off-cuts for other products to retain zero waste.

Included in this item is:

1 x laundry washing bag
1 x eco-friendly product package

This is an easy-care product. Place this bag into your washing machine on a gentle, cold cycle. Hang to dry or lay flat to dry. Do not tumble dry. There may be some small shrinkage from the first wash.

We only use plastic-free packaging and ensure everything is eco-friendly and beautifully presented. Your item is provided inside a minimal, recycled card packaging box using post-consumer waste. Your item is shipped inside one of our boxes or a reused option which can be recycled or composted and where required is kept protected with 100% post-consumer waste shredded paper (recycled or composted).

Where products are wrapped, our tissue paper is custom designed, eco-friendly printed with vegetable ink. The tissue paper is acid, lignin and sulfur free and FSC certified (Forest Stewardship Council to promote sustainable forestry).

Our mailers and envelopes are made from recycled materials. Our thank you cards are made from 100% recycled cotton t-shirts. We use paper tape for any additional closures. Please compost and recycle our packaging as appropriate.

At end of life, the product can be cut up into pieces and buried or composted.

The style shown in the photos is available.

Coconut Buttons

We make our own coconut buttons from discarded coconut shells in our Cambodian community where the studio is run. Each washing bag is provided with 2 spare buttons (one of each size) so you can continue to easily extend its life!

Perfect for travel

This washing bag is ideal for storing your dirty laundry whilst travelling. It holds a surprising amount and can be hung and easily sat on the ground for stuffing.
