The Sophie Tote – Black

ALL profits are used to provide SOS bracelets, for victims of family violence.

Buy a Sophie Tote Bag , receive a healthy dose of the feel-goods AND help others less fortunate than yourself.

The why of a Sophie Tote Bag: When the first lockdown of Covid hit, domestic violence & abuse increased by 30%.   It was a silent pandemic that allowed people with controlling natures to confiscate phones & cut their victims off from the outside world.

Rachel from Rachel Hay Design & Ico Traders decided we wanted to help. We met with local experts to better understand domestic violence situations & what was needed.  The idea of a quality tote bag was born & a New Zealand artist approached to design a unique lining for it. Sophie Elliot’s family allowed us to name the bag after the vivacious young woman who lost her life to family violence.

With 100% of the profits from sales, we buy SOS Safelets, to be distributed to woman facing the dangers of family violence.

This year our awesome Sophie bags have a lining designed by Wellington Artist Greta Menzies.  In keeping with ‘the artist collaboration’ the lining is screen printed onto 100% cotton.

Tucked away inside each zip pocket, is a leaflet with information that may help someone you know, secretly suffering from domestic abuse.

Made from 100% washed premium cotton canvas, with 2 x front pockets, 2 side pockets & an inside zip pocket for your valuables.

Measures: 38 x 38cm, shoulder strap 45cm
