Saraye Tatami Style Purse: La Hong Model Day Bag
Crafted (under the trade name Baskets of Cambodia) from Mekong River grasses by artisan families that have been practicing their skills for decades, the grass stalks are harvested, hand-dyed and then woven into the beautiful tatami fabric color and texture combinations that distinguish these well-made purses and bags from their imitators.
The La Hong Day Bag is noted for its convenient size and ease of use. The bag is approximately 9 inches tall, 6 and one-half inches across, and 3 and one-half inches wide at its base. The bag features smooth fabric straps and is very easy to carry due to its compact size.
Saraye purses are produced under strict Fair Trade practices (meaning the purchase and sale of good produced by indigenous entrepreneurs who themselves must adhere to fair trade principles in their business practices, only selling products at a fair price sufficient to provide a living wage to the producers).
