Description

One of our latest additions to the piet eco-fiber collection is this charming piet market bag. An original OPT design you won’t find anywhere else, this bag features a pretty curved shape and comfortable and sturdy canvas straps.

Relatively big, this bag is great for a trip to the farmers’ market. 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.
