This hand woven bag was made with the plant fibre chaguar, which is a type of bromeliad that grows in South America. It's a resistant and durable fibre.
To obtain this material women first travel into the forest in small groups to harvest the chaguar, they then separate its fibres by hand. After they separate the fibre they spin, dye and knit it.
All our chaguar bags & baskets have come from a remote area in Argentina - which is the semi-arid Chaco region - and hand crafted in a traditional way.
By owning one of these pieces, not only do you get the chance to appreciate the effort, story and culture behind it, you also are supporting these communities and purchasing a sustainable product.
