We are a social enterprise that aims at empowering and improving the livelihoods of the communities on Sri Lanka’s east coast, rather than on optimising profit.


Rice & Carry bags are made from locally collected and carefully cleaned recycled materials. All fabrics we use are fair trade certified and made in Sri Lanka.

Rice & Carry bags are produced at our small production facility in Komari and in the homes of our makers in Pottuvil. All our makers are women who have flourished into creative and professional manufacturers during their work with us. Our mission is to create sustainable workplaces for women of the area  and promote Fair Trade principles to the local and global community.
