  • This gorgeous new shopper is hand woven from hogla rope and leaf and features plaited and stitched recycled sari handles ♥️🧺
Skilled artisans hand weave the hogla, a thick leafed, grass like plant which grows in the rivers and marshlands, to create the rope which is then woven into the finished products. Handmade in Bangladesh, by our fair trade partner Dhaka Handicrafts 🙌🏼
Available in-store and online.
