The larger bags are big enough for grocery shopping, for use as a beach bag or every day carry all? You decide...Either way you'll absolutely love your Penan Bag and the story behind it.
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.
