Bags of Meaning
Hi, welcome to Eliza Eliza, where you can find the perfect accessory to carry your cause. My name is Elizabeth and I started my bags of meaning when I found myself teaching about sustainability to my high-school students, yet not making the connection in my personal life and still buying fast fashion. I left teaching to have my three boys and found myself behind a sewing machine making a clutch as a way to organise my handbag with mine and the children’s items. It was then that my sustainability journey truly started.
Between partnering with charities, listening to the issues that matter to you and promoting messages that mean something to me, my collections continue to grow and open up discussions for the important topics that we care about. By supporting Eliza Eliza, you are making a change and raising awareness on these causes, and I thank you for allowing me to become a part of that.
Originally I wanted to make my bags from linen, and even looked at various upholstery textiles before my research led me to discover hemp and the world of organic fabrics opened up to me. Hemp is a sustainable crop due to not needing as much water or pesticides as cotton. Beyond being antifungal and antibacterial this fabric is hardwearing whilst softening over time giving beautiful and unique characteristics to your Eliza Eliza bag the more you use it.
