Beautiful unique tote bagsShop now
Nature Bags are handmade for everyday use, including unique lines of reusable shopping bags, purses, diaper bags, produce bags, and more. They are one of the planet's only genuine zero-waste, Earth-friendly, carbon-neutral reusable bags. Each bag is homemade by indigenous Khmu artisans in northern Laos, in remote villages. They are constructed from fiber from a vine that grows without cultivation, irrigation, or chemicals. These plastic-free, cotton-free bags are truly the most eco-friendly bags on Earth.
The Khmu tribe gathers JungleVine® from the forests around their villages, strip the pulp from the fibers within, and then spin the fiber by hand before creating bags. From vine to crafting, it takes about two weeks to design each piece. They share their beautiful, sustainable bags with the world through the JungleVine Foundation.
The JungleVine Foundation’s mission is to connect remote isolated tribal communities with the global market by promoting their natural fiber handicrafts. Our work reduces poverty in rural Laos, preserves an ancient craft, and mitigates global warming through the promotion of organic vegan JungleVine® fiber.
"I love my three bags. I use them mainly for groceries and library books and they are great. Keep up the good work. I have been to S.E. Asia and am happy to support a project which benefits the people." Alice - Minnesota
"They are probably the most durable bags I've ever seen. They look so fragile with their dainty-looking weaved design, but they are so strong." -- Heather
