This bag is a phenomenal idea to live more mindful. The initial idea is whenever you think "oh that made me happy now" or "I am grateful for ..." you write that on a piece of paper and fold it. Those little pieces of gratefulness you then collect in our GRATEFULNESS BAG. What and when you collect your notes may vary from person to person, but after some time you will realize how full your bag of happiness actually is. Whenever you have trouble seeing clear, how many reason for happiness you have, reach in your bag and pull out one of the notes you collected. Read it and reflect the moment you wrote it. Then throw it back in for another time. Do this over and over for how long you feel you need it that day.
We love to take the bag with us wherever we go, because whenever we see it sitting in our suitcase, backpack or handbag, the colorful patterns remind us to pause a moment and appreciate whatever we want ... and maybe fill our bag with another note.
With every purchase you support local seamstresses in South Africa. The ORANGE CHANGE seamstresses lovingly select on of their traditional Shweshwe fabric printed on cotton.
Shweshwe has been worn by South African women since the 1800s, and the print continues to appeal across Africa and beyond.
