Description

The Katu Zen Tote Bag is just that, a tranquil, simple yet entirely masterful demonstration of the Katu’s backstrap weaving skills.

Slim, subtle and sturdy, the Katu Zen Tote Bags can be used as a handbag, a school bag or for farmer’s market outings. Based in southern Laos, the Katu are accomplished backstrap weavers and longtime partners in our Village Weavers Project.
