Borseggi Bag Initiative
The bags, as seen below, were handcrafted using EURid’s old and damaged promotional roll-ups by an Italian Social Work Cooperation called Borseggi (Pickpockets). Borseggi is a Milan based organisation that has created a tailoring workshop initiative within the Opera prison in Milan.
The goal of this initiative is to instill pride in inmates, teach them a new trade and help them successfully re-integrate into society.
These bags will be distributed, free of charge, at events that we attend in 2016.
