Description

The Kriang Tote Bag is a simple yet entirely masterful demonstration of the Kriang’s backstrap weaving skills. Woven with naturally-dyed cotton, these bags feature linear patterns that are inspired by traditional Kriang motifs, such as rows of young rice plant and fences.

Slim, subtle and sturdy, the Kriang Tote Bag can be used as a handbag, a school bag or for farmer’s market outings. Based in southern Laos, the Kriang are skilled backstrap weavers who use striped textiles for their tube skirt. We’ve adapted this to create a number of contemporary designs, from this tote to laptop sleeves, pouches and toiletry kits.
