"My brother and I visited an amazing factory outside Bologna that trains refugees and asylum seekers in the craft of making. We designed this light, versatile tote together and it hasn't left my side ever since." - Dexter
Functional to the core, this smart tote, conceived by Goodee founders and designers Byron and Dexter Peart, offers a considered take on a timeless style. Created in conjunction with Cartiera, a social cooperative founded to aid and empower asylum seekers and migrants, Cartiera is known for repurposing the 'scraps' collected from Italian fashion houses to create premium products. From work to weekend, concerts to museums, this organic cotton tote was created to travel anywhere, with design details that simplify the journey, such as easy-to-access exterior pockets, along with an interior pocket, to neatly store your items. Simple and purposeful, the Goodee tote embodies the ideas that inspire us: Good design. Good people. Good impact.
