Rattan Sling Backpack
This convertible sling shoulder bag / backpack features a light leather trim, leather drawstring closure and batik print lining.
Carefully handcrafted by the indigenous Dayak people of Borneo, this sling bag was made using split rattan from Central Kalimantan, one of the only areas in the world where rattan is harvested in a sustainable way to preserve the forest.
A renewed interest in Dyak weaving is providing a sustainable livelihood for these artisans while reviving centuries old weaving traditions, which were starting to disappear. Each bag is one-of-a-kind, with the two-tone patterns telling mystical tales & age old stories, preserving aspects of Dayak cultural heritage.
