In this post, I’ve rounded up a list of practical travel which are produced from ethically sourced and sustainable materials and support the people who make them.

1. Sari Journal
Looking for a gift for someone who loves to travel and write? This beautiful handmade notebook is made with recycled cotton paper, wrapped in a colourful sari. It comes in different, vibrant colours and each notebook has been crafted by a small family business in Rajasthan, India.
These sari journals are fairtrade and eco-friendly, and the paper is made by a charity that empowers women in rural Rajasthan.
This gorgeous shawl is the perfect travel accessory. It comes in a variety of beautiful colours and can be worn for different occasions. The material is ethically sourced and the scarves are hand loomed in Tibet by a female-led community that supports women from a disadvantage background.
The scarf is light, but cosy, and can also be used as a blanket.
Know someone who needs a new wallet? This vegan cork wallet is made from eco-friendly material, including RFID blocking material, to keep your bank cards safe in crowded places. It contains two bill compartments, six card slots and wee coin pocket.
This pretty shoulder bag is a great travel accessory. It is handmade in Nepal and is mostly made from cotton. You can also get it in red, purple and black, all with a beautifully embroidered tree of life.
