These amazing bags are an engineering marvel, super light, stretchy and strong, capable of carrying large and heavy volumes (approximately 15kg) and folds into a very small area and therefore able to easily fit into a handbag, backpack, or other bags

These bags are hand made by the indigenous tribes in Laos where the women gather vines from the forests around their villages, strip the pulp from the fibres, spin them by hand and tie them into bags. Each piece can take up to two weeks to complete.

The vines used grow without cultivation, irrigation or chemicals. It improves the soil where it grows and purifies the air, making it beneficial to the planet at large. The knowledge and skill used in the bag’s craftsmanship rests exclusively with these isolated communities and has been passed down for generations.

The women who make these bags work from their homes while nurturing their children. Making these bags helps preserve the traditional social interactions within the villages, and selling them helps the women support their communities.


This bag is 100% biodegradable
