Roop Furoshiki satin bag: The sustainable yet affordable accessory to own right now
Bag to covet
The word 'sustainability' gets bandied around frequently in the fashion industry. This would be wonderful if a lot of these statements weren't just greenwashing. Often, the best practices of sustainability are in fact practices of simplicity. You've probably seen a Roop Furoshiki bag lurking on Instagram. Their designer — Natasha Fernandes Anjo — uses nothing but remnant fabrics in their creation, only purchasing clasps and elastic new. She also singlehandedly makes everything herself which, to be honest, is just the sort of independent energy you need in your wardrobe if ever you start to doubt your own power. Surprisingly, Roop is affordable as well as sustainable. That might explain why each drop always sells out so rapidly. But honestly, if we don't get a Roop Furoshiki bag (and a scrunchie in a complementary colour) soon, summer is definitely cancelled.
