Emma Bucket Bag

A Better Bag for A Better World

Meet our first bucket bag, designed in collaboration with Whoopi Goldberg, a lady who keeps us entertained and reminds us of the beauty and importance of family. The Emma Bucket Bag is highly versatile, ready for use by day or by night and convertible from a crossbody to a shoulder bag in a snap.

Named for Whoopi's mother,  Emma Johnson, the Emma Bucket Bag is a way to celebrate her mother's life and honor the special relationship that exists between mothers and daughters worldwide.  Emma Johnson was a nurse and teacher, a "strong and wise woman" who raised Whoopi and her brother as a single mother.

We're grateful to have Whoopi lend her voice to the story of the craftsmanship and strength of our artisans and the values of Parker Clay. See the story of one of our artisans, Zewditu, in Virtual Reality.

A Carryall, Designed With All The Care.

We thought of everything on this one. Designed for the busy woman who never has quite enough hands, this carryall features a zip close, multiple interior pockets, and a removable crossbody strap. With perfectly proportioned handles (trust us, we tested them), it's a mid-sized tote perfect for running errands all over town, and then some.

Premium, Full Grain Leather

We use only premium, full grain leather from Ethiopia, hand selected to ensure quality, beauty, and durability. But what's "full grain", you ask? Full grain leather is the way leather should be; it's the highest quality available and represents the natural and unaltered hide. It's not sanded or weakened, and is as tough as nature intended it to be. Our leather is built not just to last, but to get better with every passing year.

Your Choices Matter

Products from Parker Clay are life-changing – for their lifelong owners, yes, but also for the women who create them. Many women in Ethiopia have little or no opportunity for professional skill development or long-term careers, and many turn to coercive, dangerous work to provide for their families. Approximately 1 of 4 women in Addis Ababa (the capital of Ethiopia) are unemployed, and over 150,000 are in prostitution.
