Product description

These lovely French bags are made from hand-woven cotton by villagers in the north of Thailand. The indigo used is natural dye from the indigo plant following the traditional fermentation method. Indigo is one of the most difficult colours to produce. Repeated dying is needed to achieve the light blue colour. The bags are 100% hand made. Life Interwoven designed them and worked with Women's Bag Seamstress, in the north of Thailand to create them. The bags are a trapezoid in shape.

They are lined with a dark grey coloured Inner made from cotton canvas to make them durable and they have internal compartments on both sides. One compartment has a zipper to keep valuables. We have used a beautiful timber button to close the bag. The straps are also handmade from hand-woven cotton.

This bag could be used as a casual weekend bag for shopping, going to the beach or for a picnic. Please note that these products are made by artisans. Some slight variation in colour, size and finish may, therefore, occur in the product range.
