Eakasit Modern Women's Vegan Rattan Straw Water Hyacinth Summer Tote Bag.
It takes our skilled craftsmen in Thailand anything from 15 to 24 hours on average to hand weave each water hyacinth bag by hand, and our fantastic team there worked tirelessly to bring this bag to life. All of our handbags and other accessories are woven by hand by trained artisans with your best self in mind. Our group of creatives is not only talented but also deeply committed to their work.
Our bags are made with a variety of sustainable materials, including water hyacinth and krajood seagrass. In order to make your new one-of-a-kind woven handbag, skilled Thai weavers first dry the plant and turn it into straw.
Natural wicker straw, water sedges, and krajood seagrass are hand-dyed and hand-woven by Thai artisans. Then, these fabrics are woven together using traditional methods that have been handed down through the years.
Although both the north and south of Thailand have a long tradition of weaving, most Thais who manufacture hand-woven bags can't generate a living wage from their work. In an effort to greatly benefit Thailand's rural people, The Thai Bag Co. would like to provide a hand so that they may continue their culture of weaving bags.
Water hyacinth and seagrass are two invasive plant species that have caused issues in Thailand's canals and waterways. The overgrown vegetation blocks the water channel, increasing the chance of flooding in the region. People in rural Thailand have come up with a new way to make beautiful bags out of water hyacinths.
Thai weavers make each pattern by using skills that have been passed down from generation to generation.
All of our woven bags are shipped using either DHL International Worldwide airfreight courier services or the less expensive EMS Thailand Post monitored services. Delivery times for international orders placed in Thailand typically take between five and ten days; however, this timeframe might vary widely depending on the customer's location.
