DISCOVER THE STORY OF THIS BAG

We decided to name our bags in the Penan collection after the native names of the Orang Ulu women, considering that the Penan is part of the Orang Ulu tribe. The Orang Ulu tribe can be found in Borneo, the world’s thrid largest island, and is divided among East Malaysia and Indonesia. This tribe represents a rich history dating back to hundreds of centuries and consists of other sub-tribes, namely Kayan, Kenyah, Kelabit, Lun Bawang, Penan etc.

This bag is delicately handwoven from strong cargo strips by the indigenous Penan women in the rural village of Sarawak, Malaysia. Spacious enough to store your everyday items such as groceries, books, purse, keys and even makeup set (because you’ll never know who you’ll bump into, am I right?)
