Lauren Bush Lauren Bush launched the Feed To Kenya just some nights ago. About the cosy bags, the model/ activist Lauren said, “This is the most luxury burlap bag yet, ever in the history of the world.” she was really very enthusiastic about the whole launch, doing her bit in helping feed people in one country. Bush launched the bag along with partner Ellen Gustafson at the Bergdorf Goodman. In showing her active interest and in the new launch, she went on fondling it enthusiastically. This is the latest release in the line of the super successful charity bags that the duo of Bush and Gustafson have launched.

The new tote bag is designed in the old fashioned way like it used to be by Kenyan artisans and is lined with vibrant, red patterned Maasai fabric. It used to take the Kenyan artisans a day and a half to hand bead each one of the bags. About the cloth Gustafson noted,”They wear this as a big kind of quilt to scare off lions- so, very appropriate in New York.” Bush exclaimed,”This is definitely the rich, colorful cousin.”

The tote bag comes with a leather strap. The bags are priced at $ 195 which is a lot more than what it costs to buy a sack of potatoes. It is not ‘affordable’ in any measures. However, when you think of the fact that it will be feeding the hungry mouths of two Kenyan children, the cost factor does not actually stay in mind, does it.
