Ragbag

Description

Ragbags are fashionable bags and accessories made from recycled plastic bags and cotton rags, collected and fabricated by ‘ragpickers’ in the slums of Delhi and Calcutta (India). The production is done by rag pickers, who collect the plastic waste and sell it to the collection centers where they wash and clean it. The bags are sorted on colours and pressed to thicker sheets. Finally they go to small fabricators who make them into new products. The project is already creating jobs for more than 60 ragpickers, people at collection centers and fabricators in New Delhi.
