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 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.
This year our awesome Sophie bags have a lining designed by Wellington Artist Greta Menzies. In keeping with ‘the artist collaboration’ the lining is printed using a screen printing technique, 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 long.
