Just like it says in its name, the Tube and Fabric Tote Bag gives you the best of both sustainable materials; rubber tyre tube and durries from cotton sarees.
We repurpose cotton sarees by handcrafting them into durries; strips of cotton woven together. Rubber patches are cut into shape and stitched with the durries, crafting an attractive contrast of black with multi-coloured fabric. Multiple pockets make this bag a boon for those who like their stuff well-organised. (Don’t we all?) The inside opens into a zippered pouch, an open pouch, two pen slots, and a dedicated pouch for your water bottle/ coffee mug.
Lively reds or cool blues – choose from two colour variants we have. Whether you’re stepping out for a brunch with friends or for a quick shopping trip, this upcycled fabric tote bag will seamlessly complement your outfit, be it a saree or your favourite pair of T-shirt and jeans.

As upcycled and repurposed products are usually handcrafted, each piece is a unique one. Since no two products are identical, you may find slight variations in the way they appear. Thus, the pattern of the bag may vary depending on the cotton material available with us. However, the primary colour, design and quality will be uniform.
Durrie Bag Making Process:
We at Rimagined believe that traditional weaving and craft forms are windows to our rich heritage of culture and ancient wisdom and that they must be preserved. One of these methods is the “Khesh” weaving technique, originating in West Bengal, in Tagore’s Shantiniketan.
This time-tested method of “Khesh” weaving is a beautiful textile process involving the utilisation of old cotton sarees to create something gorgeous while giving these sarees a new lease of life. This woven textile is commonly known as Durries and it is the very same woven cotton textile, we use to create our Durrie Bag Range of upcycled products.
We select the most colourful durries of the lot to handcraft these upcycled woven cotton sheets to create these vibrant bags, to add a pop of colour to your closet! With these upcycled Durrie bags, we give you something that you can be especially proud of because in essence, this bag is created using an exceptional notion of creating upcycled products out of upcycled sustainable material.
