Dabbawalla Bags: Traffic-Stopping Backpacks and Lunch Bags
In India, dabbawallas bring home-cooked lunches to office workers. Here at home, fashionable children carry their lunches in Dabbawalla Bags ($38-48). They’re beyond cute and colorful. They’re kid-sized neoprene backpacks and lunch sacks that are super comfy to carry. The straps on the backpack are adjustable from the inside so they don’t dangle and the stretchy fabric is machine washable and stain resistant. The cute lunch bags are small but roomy with a comfy handle on top. Both styles have an outside pocket that’d be perfect for a juice box and utensils. Even more appealing, the bags are made by sewers who earn fair wages in a safe work environment. They make us want to pack a picnic!
