Description

We traveled to Lamam City in Sekong Province in southern Laos, specifically to work with the Kriang, accomplished backstrap weavers who work with heavy cotton yarns. Kriang textiles are incredibly durable and ready to handle anything. The Kriang use striped textiles for their tube skirts.

Our collaboration with these artisans led to the creation of the first collection of cool Two in One backpacks a couple of years ago. We now come back with a new and improved version where the leather has been replaced by canvas. The zippered main compartment and an exterior pocket makes things easy to reach and organize.

Complete the look with our Stripy Kriang Backpack, Stripy Kriang Laptop Bag, Stripy Kriang Pencil Case and Stripy Kriang Saa Paper Notebook. Have a look at the collection here.
