Ragibags began in August 2011, when I took redundancy from my college post of 20 years. I taught students with learning difficulties which was very rewarding, but it was time to move on. When the opportunity presented itself to work for myself and create beautiful items which others would get pleasure from I embraced it! With a small Janome sewing machine and a bag of mixed fabric, sheets, old skirts and wool, Ragibags was born.
The company is ethical and ecofriendly. I enjoy creating bags and accessories from fabric that others throw away. I trawl charity shops buying sheets, fabric, skirts, kilts, buttons and jewellery. My embellished kilt pins, knitted corsages and fimo buttons are handmade by me. I also buy Indian Yarn which comes from the women’s cooperatives in India, allowing them to earn a living wage and improve their quality of life. The bags are funky, fun and make an ideal gift for the woman who ‘dares to be different’. Each time you buy a Ragibag you are helping someone else and our environment. Enjoy browsing my shop and thank you for your interest in Ragibags.
You can buy a ragibag on my Facebook link: www.facebook.co.uk/ragibags and on the website: www.runnative.co.uk/ragibags. Or if you prefer, you can email me on: email@example.com. Ragibags will be selling items via Party Plan in the very near future.
Ragibags are also on sale at the Merchant’s Garden, Kirkcaldy and Elie Artroom, Elie.
