Hand-crocheted by Kmhmu artisans in Oudomxai Province in northern Laos, TAEC designed this roomy shopper out of the sturdy Liana vine. Traditionally Kmhmu would use vine bags to carry vegetables and herbs from the forest -- in their modern incarnation, they can be used to carry the same from the farmer's market.
