The local villagers in Laos call it kheuapiad (jungle vine®) and have been using it for hundreds of years. The Khmu, an indigenous group in northern Laos, harvest, hand spin and tie the vines into the beautiful products that we carry. By purchasing from this collection, you are helping provide economic opportunities and preserving this ancient Khmu craft.
These products are sustainable and organic. You won't get a more eco-friendly bag than one made from jungle vine® (pueraria phaseoloides).
Don't let the delicate lace appearance fool you, products made from this fibre are durable, stretchy and made to last.
