Description

One of our latest additions to the piet eco-fiber collection is this functional, cute and sturdy multi-purpose piet bag.

Since October 2019, in collaboration with the EIF (Enhanced Integrated Framework), we’ve been working with artisans from 6 different villages and 3 provinces. We help them develop ranges of handicrafts that combine craftsmanship and tradition with realistic creativity and market knowledge.

Our team of weavers, dyers, designers and tailors transfer their skills to aid artisans to make a better living from handicrafts.

Piet grows in the Lao jungle and has long been a staple fibre used by Khmu communities to make bags and straps for hauling everything from firewood to fodder to forest mushrooms. Piet is durable and still soft enough for everyday use. When checking out, add your colour preference.

The bag comes in orange, red, orange, and beige. Each one is unique. You can select or let us pick for you!
