Traveljunkieindonesia.com – Hi travel junkies! I found this amazing Laga Handbags — handmade in Aceh, Indonesia by women who survived the tsunami that took the lives of over 285,000 people.
The handbags are sewn on pedal-driven, non-electric treadle machines. Each bag is embroidered with hand-guided patterns that have been passed through the generations and are indigenous to this area. Each handbag is a unique piece of historical art.
These beautiful handbags have been given Indonesian names that depict hope after the tsunami: “Damai” (peace), “Sehat” (healthy), “Percaya” (believe)…
Each handbag is made from nylon polyester fabric and stitched with nylon polyester thread so your @LagaHandbags is water and stain resistant and lined with luxurious silk satin lining.
Creative, authentic and attractive, each handbag sewn and sold provides renewed hope for a better tomorrow.
It’s so PRETTY and it feels LOVELY. What do you think?!

Happy Sustainable Travels!
