Nature Bags of Jungle Vine Support the People of Laos
kirkscubagear is offering these Lovely Nature Bags. Nature Bags are made of wild growing Jungle Vine--by the people of Laos (Southeast Asia). Essentially this is a 5000 year old tradition of weaving which allows the ancient Khmu culture to use the natural vines of that region and turn them into something functional. The jungle vine is actually opened and stripped of it's core, which is a white ribbony like twine. The twine is then woven together and then woven into the bags! Amazing strength and beauty comes from these sturdy bags which come in many shapes and sizes!
