Junglevine An Dai Shoulder Bag
An Dai JungleVine® Tote Bags are a medley of all Nature Bag styles and ideal for adventurous souls. An Dai is Lao for “which one” because these are the odds and ends of the JungleVine® Totes collection. Occasionally, Khmu artisans create a bag so unique that it doesn’t fit in with any of our standard styles. Each bag features a unique colour pattern. Each An Dai bag is a handmade work of art that reflects the Khmu artisan's spirit.
Khmu artisans in northern Laos harvest stems from a vine (Pueraria phaseoloides) that grows wild -- without any agricultural labour, supplemental water, or chemical inputs. Hand-processing the stems, they extract JungleVine® fibres, which they hand-spin and use to create Nature Bags and other JungleVine® products. A cottage industry has arisen within these deeply isolated villages, and the artisans collaborate with the JungleVine® Foundation to promote and sell their handicrafts all over the world.
