BounBoun Bag

Regular price $165.00 Sale

All the way from East Asia, The BounBoun mesh bag is produced from a fast-growing jungle vine that needs no cultivation, irrigation or chemicals. Using fair-trade principles with a sensitivity towards preserving the ancient Khmu culture.  Woven by women of the tribe, this family tradition is a skill that has been handed down through generations. We incorporated the delicate, but strong lace mesh into our own design, adding natural vegetable-tanned leather, and BounBoun was born. The word for festival in Lao is “boun.” Say it twice and it’s double the fun! Each purchase of a BounBoun bag directly impacts the quality of life of the indigenous people of northern Laos, providing them with a livelihood without having to sacrifice their traditional ways and rich culture.
