Buy Rice Back is a social enterprise recycling old (but beautiful!) rice sacks to support the work of My Name is Kumar.

We take colourful, Indian rice sacks from My Name is Kumar’s local area and upcycle them into funky, unique tote bags and accessories.

The bags are made by our local tailor Karthick and we make sure to pay him a fair wage for his work. Each bag comes with a label explaining how your purchase has made a difference.

One of our £10/€10 tote bags can pay for 148 meals of rice for the children of My Name is Kumar. That’s a lot of full bellies!


Location: India. Beautiful bags shipped worldwide.
