Water Hyacinth Bag From Mekong Plus


Purchased during our latest adventure to Vietnam! We only have two in stock. Beautifully hand crafted and a lovely summer accessory. Read more about Mekong+ and their efforts below. 

Measures 11" Deep and 15" Wide.

All items are created by female artisans in rural Vietnam. They skillfully handcraft the water hyacinth products earning 5$/day which is a really good complement. They work at home, alongside their children and communities.

Traditionally considered a weed, water hyacinth grows in abundance in the waterways of Vietnam and Cambodia. We use this sustainable raw material to create beautiful bags and accessories in support of community development. Water hyacinth is known for its soft feel and distinctive smell, reminiscent of leather and fine tobacco.
