This large weave tote bag was made with abaca fiber material which is all natural in texture (Manila fiber/hemp). This is not made using straw which can rip easily, but actual natural Abaca fiber. For a more in-depth explanation of Abaca, please take a moment and google (Abaca Fiber).
Abaca or what we now call in Asia, “Natural Leather” comes from a very delicate plant also known as Manila fiber/hemp and comes from a habitation area which is limited and produces high-quality natural material which results in the scarcity value.
We take the fiber out of the tree trunk and begin drying the fiber to make a thick thread, and use our skilled worker to knit it. It takes a full day to naturally dry the fibers and a full day to make one bag as this bag is all handmade. If we use dye to produce the different color, we will need to add an additional day.
You can take pride in today’s eco-system as this bag gives you a special and unique natural feeling.
