Direk Thai Handmade Asian Woven Ladies Bamboo Raffia Shoulder Bag.
Each water hyacinth bag is woven by hand by one of our professional craftsmen in Thailand, a process that typically takes 15 to 24 hours. Every one of our handbags and other accessories is woven by hand by our expert artisans with your best self in mind. The creatives on our team are true professionals who really enjoy what they do.
Our bags are made with a variety of sustainable materials, such as krajood seagrass and water hyacinth. Straw made from the dried plant is used by skilled Thai weavers to create a one-of-a-kind tote for you.
Thai artisans employ natural materials, including wicker straws, water sedges, and krajood seagrass, which they colour and weave by hand. These fabrics are then woven together using traditional methods that have been handed down through the years.
Weaving has a rich history in both the north and south of Thailand, yet most weavers in Thailand can't earn a living wage from their craft. The Thai Bag Company is working hard to have a significant impact on rural life in Thailand. We'd like to lend a helping hand and ensure that the art of weaving bags does not die out.
Invasive plant species like water hyacinth and seagrass have caused a number of issues in Thailand's canals and waterways. The probability of flooding is higher since the water route is obstructed by overgrown vegetation. Thai weavers in the countryside have come up with a new way to make beautiful water hyacinth bags.
People in Thailand weave each pattern with great care, using techniques for creating bags that have been handed down through the ages.
We transport all of our handwoven bags using either DHL International Worldwide airfreight courier services or the more reliable, monitored services of the Thai Post's EMS system. Depending on the location of the consumer, direct delivery from Thailand might take anywhere from five to ten days.
