Product Description

Like a handbag? Need it to suddenly go to a cross body as you're moving about your day? No problem. This extraordinary purse adjusts to fit your needs of the moment and will be the most versatile bag you could ever own. Made from woven yellow grass, you'll be delighted by its unique look and impressed by it's functionality. We can't say enough about this best seller.

The poverty in some regions of Cambodia is severe, while the resources to fight this poverty are a challenge. Creativity in addressing these issues is essential. Every year the Mekong River recedes and the tropical sun's searing heat gives rise to the beautiful river grasses. This grass is selectively harvested, hand dyed, and woven on traditional wooden looms into tatami mats. The mats are then cut and sewn into beautiful purses. Start to finish, the artisans who make these incredible accessories are paid above local rates, giving them a more stable and livable income. These extraordinary purses hold up year round and are as wearable and durable as they are a conversation piece.
