One of our latest additions to the piet eco-fiber collection is this charming rattan handle piet bag. This design – a collaboration between OPT and Mrs. Ven Khongmany, an artisan from Ban Mang, in the Oudomxay Province, won the first prize at the Lao Handicraft Festival in 2020.
Since October 2019, in collaboration with the EIF (Enhanced Integrated Framework), we’ve been working with Mrs. Ven Khongmany and other 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.
Due to their handmade features, colour vary greatly with this piece. Please add the comments of the number you prefer on the order. We offer Natural colour and Green.
