Zero Waste Pouch


Size Guide
Oat Stripe
Olive Lyocell / Linen
Black Lyocell / Linen
Camel Lyocell / Linen

Made 100% out of fabric scraps and leftover zippers, these bags are are completely zero waste. 

After we moved into our studio in June, we began saving all our fabric scraps. The pieces that were too small were reused as ties for our order bundles. The larger pieces were set aside for future projects. 

Once summer was over and we had a lot of zippers left, we knew we could make zippered pouches! 

Available in two sizes, these pouches are double lined with linen making it even sturdier. 

The smaller pouch measures 7" X 5.5".

The larger pouch measures 9" X 7.5".

Lovely Addition to My Bag

It's very soft and attractive, I love the shade of yellow. Very happy with this purchase.,

So simple yet so cute and useful! I use the small and large sizes for my work bag - electronics and cords in one, meds hair ties and other small random items in the other. They’re very well made and the fabrics and colors are perfect! I may need to get a few more next time I buy something!

Beautiful Pouches

I purchased two of these, and they are beautifully made and the perfect size for traveling toiletries. Bonus thatbthese are made with leftover fabrics. I love the vibrant colors and supporting Sotela!

 Sotela's approach to sizing is a little different. Instead of using the conventional small, medium and large, we've decided to change our wording because why not! We want to keep things simple and offer the most out of your clothing. 




Here's a step by step of how to choose your Sotela size:

  1. Measure yourself – This one is very important if you shop online, which as of now, I think we all are! Check out our tutorial to measure yourself because we use low hip measurements with our clothing. 
  2. Once you have your measurements, go to the product page for the garment you are interested in and click on the “Sizing and fit” tab or “Garment Measurements for Petite, etc.”
  3. The garment measurements on the product page will tell you the actual width and length of the garment. For example: the Ryan Trouser measures 26″ with an unstretched waistband and 42″ in the hip for the size 1.
  4. Based on your measurements, choose a size that is about 2″ more than your largest measurement. For example: I have a 39″ hip. The size 1 hip measures 42″ which gives me about 3″ of ease. The size 0 measures 40″ in the hip making it too small for me.
  5. Make sure to use your largest measurement when choosing a size, especially if you are looking at a jumpsuit or dress. If your bust is larger than your hip, I’d recommend choosing a size based on your bust because that ensures it will give sufficient ease for the rest of your body.
  6. Lastly, if you are still unsure, email us hello (at) with your measurements! We are happy to recommend a size.
