Yoga Bag

Enter your yoga sessions in style with our ethically made Yoga Bag.⁠ With a reinforced shoulder strap, drawstring tie at the top and two outer pockets with elastic closure for keys and extra items, this bag is the perfect addition to your exercise gear.⁠

Most importantly, your purchase not only supports sustainable employment opportunities for the Ghanaian women who handcrafted the yoga bag, it also raises funds for Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia's work to eradicate fistula forever through treatment, rehabilitation and prevention programs.⁠

Available in Mustard and Chroma, you can find the Hamlin Shop's Yoga Bags here.


Catherine Tote

Whether you're heading to beach or doing the weekly grocery shop, show your love for Dr Catherine Hamlin with this limited edition reusable cotton Catherine Tote bag. The Catherine Tote was created to celebrate the 60th anniversary of when Drs Catherine and Reg Hamlin first arrived in Ethiopia.

The tote bag displays Catherine’s face, painted by a longtime Hamlin supporter, Fiona. By carrying this tote bag, you are helping to spread the Hamlin story far and wide. Get your Catherine Tote here!
