Description

One of our latest additions to the piet eco-fiber collection are these colorful piet and hemp tote bag. An original OPT design you won’t find anywhere else, this bag features a pretty straight shape, a hemp base and comfortable yet sturdy piet straps. Not too small, not too big, it’s perfect for your casual city strolls.

Piet grows in the Lao jungle and has long been a staple fiber 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.

Since October 2019, in collaboration with the Enhanced Integrated Framework (EIF), 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.
