Biddy Bags is a non-profit public company limited by guarantee.
Women are contracted on a product-to-product basis and benefit through profit-share and increased social interaction.
For each product sold the woman who crafted it receives over half of the profit with the remainder being used to cover operational costs and to expand the enterprise’s reach.
Amongst other things, the digital age and globalisation has decreased meaningful human interaction and connection.
Biddy Bags is one attempt to remind all of us that “milk doesn’t come from supermarkets, and money doesn’t come out of walls”.
