Good to know
Our sling bag is handwoven by a small cooperative of women weavers in rural South India. Using an ancient technique that requires no machines, small pieces of dried banana fiber are twisted and hand-rolled into a ball of thin durable thread that is used for weaving our bags. Banana fiber is one of the world's strongest natural fibers.
Your purchase will benefit the local women artisans and their livelihood. The cooperative is entirely sustained by the sales of their products. Read more about banana fiber weaving and our crafts.
