Stand out with this striking monochrome handwoven shoulder bag.
The design is inspired by the traditional French shopping basket. 

Every Handwoven Basket Bags from the Penan women is unique in its size, shape or colour combination.

Features of the Monochrome bag:

  • Loops over to close
  • Front Fastening
  • Black handles long enough to wear over the shoulder
  • The bags are washable and long lasting
  • Measures 36x24x7cm + 24cm long handles
  • Pattern on back different from front
The art of weaving is deeply ingrained in Penan Culture. With skilled hands, strips of coloured material are brought to life and lovingly transformed into beautiful crafts, each telling a unique story.
Rattan has traditionally been the primary raw material for weaving, however it is increasingly scarce. Consequently Helping Hands provides the Penan women with colourful PVC strips as a durable and versatile alternative.
New designs and colour combinations are being developed all the time so the humble rattan basket bag is always bang up to date. What was once a dying trade is now attracting young Penan girls, eager to hone their craft.
