The Story, ZAY: Your bag was born in the hands of talented weavers, in the hot and colourful city of Mandalay, Myanmar. She sits, weaving tape around a frame. To the side, small children play as she works. From the traditional back streets to remote farming villages that don’t appear on maps, we found them. Her skill was passed down to her, from her mother. Her mother from her grandmother. Generations of knowledge in her hands. Wrapping, pulling, guiding.The tape used is accessible and familiar to the weavers, and made from upcycled plastic or rattan whenever possible. The income from Zay is a sustainable income, a fair wage. Money for her family, her skill, her knowledge.
*A note from ZAY: When we are able to source this and determine its authenticity, we use upcycled tape. This includes our Sol range, and components of other ranges. Occasionally we are unable to source this for Sol, and the bag may contain components of the regular, high-quality pallet tape
