Committed to producing the highest quality leather goods, What Daisy Did has partnered with local artisans from India to create eco-friendly leather bags made to last. Named after native UK trees to celebrate their partnership with The Woodland Trust, The Forest Collection is a unique series of handmade leather handbags, backpacks, messenger bags, satchels, laptop bags and more, using only certified eco-friendly practices and made from locally sourced materials. All bags use leather from community-farmed goats, where each hide is naturally tanned under the desert sun using vegetable oils, and never with chemical tanners, which can harm local water supplies. All leftover scraps of leather are sold to a local jeweler to minimize waste.
Manufactured by a local community of sixty families (30 women and 57 men) in the western deserts of India, tailors are paid a fair living wage, work from home and have complete control over their work schedule. This means families can set their own deadlines, which allows them to focus on important commitments, such as university or parenting. No child, elderly or forced labor is ever used in the making of these products.
