What is a JungleBag®?

It is a Nature Bag. Unique in style, structure and shape, JungleBags® are homemade in Laos from wild-growing JungleVine®. This design has been perfected by thousands of years of use on steep mountainsides by the Khmu tribe. The result is a sturdy versatile eco-friendly bag evolved from the survival necessity of safely carrying a day’s collection of essentials.
