In marshy land throughout the Philippines, bangkuang rushes grow thick, dense, and up to 6 feet tall. It's a sturdy, plentiful reed that's been woven into mats and other useful things here for hundreds of years. The bangkuang for our Bayong bags is harvested as it has been for generations – with scythes and knives, and then gathered into great sheaves before it is spread out to dry. The stalks are braided, the braids are woven onto a sturdy iron frame, and then the bag is fitted with leather-wrapped handles to finish this rustic, modern, and very functional accent.
