Screen Print on Jute, then fabricated in to bags.
 
A homage to the unappreciated hero of the coffee world, the Jute sack. Plus the extremely generous and supportive team at Volcano Coffee works who have helped me kick start a career path I never thought I would undertake. How such a versatile and often lavishly decorative material can be so callously tossed after use is baffling. 100% Organic, environmentally sustainable, hard wearing and food safe; why do we still need plastic bags?
