kudzu bag

i have not let go, in my heart or mind, of a super-unique, cool bag that i saw at the double rl (ralph lauren) store months ago.   yes, it was too expensive....but i'm pretty sure i just found it for $20!!  it's called the nature bag.  granted, it's not indigo-dyed like the rl one, but that's ok---it's even better!

it's organic, and it's made out of kudzu by indigenous minority families of khmu in laos.

it is super strong, comes in all sizes, and ranges from solid/neutral to striped/vibrant.  it is perfect as a reusable grocery bag or kids' stash-all---or just a damn cute tote.
