Each bag is handwoven, it takes a week or longer to make 1 bag depending on the complexity of the weave. The leather is organically vegetable dyed, using extracts from various trees. This is the traditional process.
These bags are made in a coastal area of South India, where women traditionally weaved fishing nets and baskets. These skilled artisans are located, and then trained in weaving bags out of bamboo-sized strips of leather.
These bags are giving back to the community, providing employment and boosting the livelihood of these vulnerable female weavers. The traditional weaving techniques means a beautiful, sturdy bag, built to last a lifetime. All without stitching and threads.
