carry me back bags are produced by women group trained and employed by moware design
While designing the bags, we aimed for low-cost production using only common waste materials from this region. Being rice a staple in the Asian culture, we decided to use rice sacks to produce the bags.
The Dutch designing company Super Local made the initial design. Then the moware design team continued with extensive research and sampling to find the appropriate measures and materials to make the bags durable and with the possibility of reusing them time and again.
moware design trained and employed various women to start producing the bags for the pilot of the project. SPCC ordered 20,000 to continue with the carry me back project in the upcoming trekking seasons. The social enterprise moware design will continue training women groups from the Khumbu region to promote local production while creating employment in the high mountain regions of Nepal.
