This item was made with Love in Chiang Mai, Thailand, by our partner Somlux.
Somlux is a 45 year old woman who started her own little business with straw bags and shoes only a few weeks ago. She learned this weaving technique, mostly used to produce rice barrels and baskets, from her mother and grand-mother when she was a child. Being a mom of 3 children and working until now mainly as a housewife, she recognized this upcoming straw trend as a great opportunity for her to enable a financial contribution to her family and to become, ideally, one day financially independent.
