The Ocean Tribal clutch is perfect for the beach, brunch, and everything in between! Traditional techniques and patterns are used to create these trendy, modern bags. It is completely handwoven with a repeating design on front and back.
Laos is a country of diverse ethnic groups, each with unique and highly adept craft and artisan skills, but the pressures of modern life and the availability of cheap factory made imports have resulted in Lao people giving up their crafts and their rural livelihoods. As a result, many of the crafts of Laos are vanishing art forms. Our design and production teams work closely with artisan groups in Laos to create items that fit modern, natural lifestyles while still retaining the spirit of traditional craftsmanship. Guided by the principles of fair trade, we work to create employment opportunities for villagers, especially women, and to reduce poverty and each product is made and finished in the villages.
These beautiful tribal bags are made using hand-woven and hand-dyed saa (mulberry) bark. From dyeing and weaving to the finishing work, the value-added income stays in the village. In addition to using natural fibers, materials and dyes, the villagers are committed to reducing waste and upcycling, when possible. Bags are lined with remnant fabrics and fibers. Nothing goes to waste and everything is done to consciously reduce waste and protect the environment.
Our Accessories can only be considered beautiful if the process used to produce them preserves the integrity and beauty of the Earth and her people.
