FAQ’S

What materials are used to make the bags?
At Thai Bag Co., our bags are crafted from sustainably sourced water hyacinth straw. This eco-friendly material is harvested from the serene waters of Phayao in Northern Thailand, ensuring minimal environmental impact while providing both durability and a unique aesthetic. The water hyacinth plant, which grows abundantly in Thai waterways, is transformed through meticulous processing into the beautiful straw that forms the foundation of our bags. This process not only helps control the spread of this invasive species but also promotes environmental sustainability by turning a potential ecological problem into a valuable resource for crafting stylish, durable bags.
How are the bags made?
Each bag from Thai Bag Co. is meticulously handcrafted by skilled artisans who use traditional Thai weaving techniques. The creation process for each bag can take between 24 to 36 hours, highlighting the dedication and expertise involved in its crafting. Our artisans, who come from local communities in Phayao, Northern Thailand, follow centuries-old weaving traditions that have been passed down through generations. These techniques ensure that each bag is not only a functional accessory but also a piece of art, reflecting the rich cultural heritage of Thailand. The weaving process involves carefully selecting, drying, and preparing the straw, which is then woven into intricate patterns to create bags that are both durable and visually stunning.
