Somboon Woven Designer Ladies Handcrafted Raffia Thai Water Hyacinth Tote Bag.
This bag was handcrafted with care by our fantastic team in Thailand, and it takes our skilled artisans in Thailand an average of 15 to 24 hours to hand weave each water hyacinth bag by hand. Each of our handbags and accessories is woven by hand by our talented weavers, and they do so with an idealised version of you in mind. Our group of talented artists is passionate about their work and deeply committed to perfecting their skills.
The creation of our bags utilises a variety of eco-friendly materials, like water hyacinth and krajood seagrass, to name just two of those components. The plant is then left to dry and turned into the straw, which is then used by skilled Thai craftspeople to make your new bag, which is a handwoven craft of the highest quality.
Hand-dyed and hand-woven natural wicker straws, water sedges, and krajood seagrass are used by artisans who have been trained in Thailand. After that, the native weavers' techniques, which have been passed down from generation to generation, are blended with these materials to create the final product.
Both the north and the south of Thailand have a long history of the art of weaving, but unfortunately, the majority of individuals in Thailand who manufacture hand-woven bags don't generate enough money to support themselves with their work. The Thai Bag Company is working hard to have a significant impact on the quality of life in the rural villages of Thailand. We'd like to help them out and keep the tradition of making bags alive.
Because invasive plant species like water hyacinth and seagrass are present in Thailand's canals and waterways, a number of issues that were previously unsolvable have now become apparent. The overgrown vegetation blocks the water channel, which increases the risk that the region will be flooded. As a result, the area is more likely to be flooded. Villagers in Thailand who have been weaving for years have developed a revolutionary new method to weave gorgeous water hyacinth bags out of this plant. The bags can be made from the stems and leaves of the water hyacinth plant.
People in Thailand are responsible for skillfully weaving each design using tried-and-true techniques that have been passed down from one generation to the next for the purpose of creating bags.
