The Lao Market Eco-Friendly Mesh Net Bag the perfect zero-waste produce bag for the farmer's market or grocery store. It is remarkably lightweight and compact and stretches to gently cradle your fruits and vegetables.
Lao Market Bags are made using JungleVine® Fiber, Earth friendly because of its carbon-negative (net zero) impact. The fiber comes from a vine (Pueraria phaseoloides) that is a self-renewing resource. Like all plants, it converts carbon dioxide to oxygen, but unlike all plants, it also fixes nitrogen from the air and improves the soil where it grows, healing the soil on damaged sites and creating an ecosystem ideal for the return of insects and birds to once-desolate sites. Khmu artisans who harvest the vine to make bags never over-harvest, allowing the vines to regrow, which they do rapidly. The vine grows without cultivation, irrigation, or chemicals which makes it far superior to cotton tote bags.
Lao Market Eco-Friendly Mesh Net Bags are stretchy, strong, and durable. You'll want to take one with you everywhere you go. Enjoy free worldwide shipping on retail orders over $100.
Natural vs Soa JungleVine® Fiber Lao Market Bags
Natural bags are made of undyed JungleVine® Fiber. Soa bags are dyed, and appear in a mix of dark shades. Due to variation in the vines, time of year the vines are harvested, and dye processes, Soa bags range from very dark blue-black to shades of gray, to coppery brown in color. Soa includes some bags that are mottled and two-toned.
