Jungle Vine Bag

A Million Elephants

Jungle Vine Bag

The Classic Jungle Bag is made from 100% jungle vine fibre that grows naturally in northern Laos. Local villagers have been using "kheuapiad" (jungle vine) for carrying crops, tools and stones for hundreds of years. The Khmu, an indigenous ethnic group in northern Laos, harvest, hand spin and tie the vines into bags.
This eco-friendly bag is perfect for those looking for an organic and completely natural product, as the vines grow without any cultivation, irrigation or chemicals. Use as a market, gym or beach bag. Also great for travelling with as it is compact and lightweight!
Don't let the delicate lace appearance fool you, these bags are very strong and stretchy.
Eco friendly
Fair wage

The local villagers in Laos call it kheuapiad (jungle vine) and have been using it for hundreds of years.
