Nettle Market Bag


This handwoven bag is so beautiful and functional it is destined to become your absolute favourite!

Hand loomed using traditional techniques and natural fibres, it is roomy, light-weight and comfortable to wear.

Handmade by home-based, skilled women knitters in Kathmandu, these bags are made from 100% nettle from sustainably managed forests in Nepal. Nettle is known for being one of the finest and strongest of natural fibres. In fact, nettle is traditionally used to make fish nets due to its strength and longevity.

The handmade leather handle adds an extra level of comfort to carrying. It is vegetable tanned, processed traditionally in Nepal by an artisan leather maker.

A brilliant alternative to plastic bags, perfect for fruit and veg, this bag will very quickly become your everyday staple.

Base in diameter: 30.5cm

Length (body only): approx. 25.5cm

Width diameter (when extended): approx. 48 - 51cm

Handle drop length: approx. 35.5cm

100% natural nettle, hand knitted, the colors of individual bags may vary slightly due to the nature of the yarn.

Hand wash cold; do not bleach; do not wring.

Proudly designed in Australia by Woodfolk Natural Accessories and lovingly handmade by a wonderful women's collective in Nepal.
