Sustainable Tote Bags

Fashionable and functional, vegan and ethical. That’s what Karuna Dawn’s sustainable tote bags and accessories are all about. All our products are vegan, and sourced ethically from international partners who not only observe fair trade but are mindful of the earth’s resources. Made from sustainable materials inside and out, these bags are expertly handcrafted by highly skilled artisans.

Denim Bags

Made from 100% upcycled denim material, the various shades of blue give the bags their distinctive design but still maintain the integrity and quality of the denim material. Because these bags are upcycled, we’ve saved at least 10,000 litres of water—that’s what it takes to make a pair of jeans! Ethically made in India by our partner, the bags were lovingly made by women from marginalised groups.

Inspired by the Japanese concept, Bento, our Denim Bento Bags have a lightweight design but are spacious enough to accommodate all your stuff. They have a self-closing mechanism when worn over the shoulder. Our Denim Sling Bags can be used as a crossbody or over-the-shoulder bag, with an easily adjustable strap. Secured by a YKK zipper at the top, they have inside and outside pockets for your belongings. Our Denim Tote Bags feature patchwork made from 8 to 10 different pairs of jeans and a zipped internal pocket. They are your handy companion you can take anywhere.

Messenger Bags

Made from leaf leather, our unisex messenger bags are stylish, durable, and functional. They feature a distinctive and stunning imprint of leaves which makes every bag unique. Dyed, and sealed using a non-toxic film to preserve nature’s beauty, the bags have many pockets where you can organise your items conveniently. Available in Beige & Brown, Red & Brown, Green & Brown, the messenger bags have an external zipped pocket under the flap, giving you quick and easy access to items you need.

We are also offering our Messenger Bags in Bundles—Our Core Pack includes the bag, a Wallet, a Pen Holder, and a Card Holder; Our Duo Pack includes the bag and an A6 Notebook; Our Trio Pack has the bag, an A6 Notebook and a Purse; Our Staple Pack has the bag, a wallet, a Toiletries Bag, a Pen Holder, and a Card Holder; and our Ultimate Pack which has the bag, an A6 Notebook, an A5 Notebook, a Wallet, a Pen Holder, and a Card Holder.


Karuna Dawn’s collection of handbags are all made from leaf leather, a great alternative to traditional leather that offers durability and performance. Our collection of handbags are made from teak leaves native to northern Thailand. With a unique imprint of leaves, each bag is a one-off. To preserve nature’s beauty, the bags are dyed and sealed using a non-toxic film.

This handmade treasure features a single handle, silver detailing, magnetic button closure, and a removable shoulder strap. The bag is perfect for everyday use, accommodating all your necessities. And most of all, you’re doing your share in making the planet sustainable, choosing compassion over cruelty by using leaves or plant-based materials as an alternative.

At Karuna Dawn, we aim to create a path for conscious, compassionate, and sustainable living. And we enjoy sharing this with you through our ethical bags and other accessories.
