B-Grade JungleVine® Bag
What are B-Grade JungleVine® bags?
B-Grade JungleVine® bags are our market seconds. While these discounted hand-made bags didn’t pass our quality control inspections, they’re still a great choice! They’re fully functional and there is nothing structurally wrong with them, but they’re not quite on par with our top bags. They’re an eco-friendly option, too, as we don’t allow any of our B-Grade bags to end up in landfills.
How are B-Grade JungleVine® bags made?
Every bag we sell has been carefully handcrafted by Khmu women, who pass down the bag-making craft from mother to daughter. In fact, the bag-making tradition has been an important part their culture for more than a thousand years.
New artisans practice their first few bags under strict guidance, as they hone in on and perfect their bag-making skills. Their elders are such effective teachers that it only takes a few bags before each new artisanal bag maker is creating flawless bags. Of course, they don’t want their less-than-perfect bags to go to waste, and that’s how they become B-Grade JungleVine® bags.
How much do B-Grade JungleVine® bags cost?
B-Grade bags are offered at deeply discounted clearance prices. Offering B-Grade bags gives brand new artisans an opportunity to sell their work while they learn. They also offer consumers the chance to own beautiful hand-made bags at a fraction of the cost.
