This stylish shopper bag will be your best companion when you go downtown, not only for shopping. You will fall in love with its natural colour which goes well with every outfit. Cattail (also known as bulrush) is an extraordinary material: waterproof, ultralight, and extremely durable.

 

The bag is a perfect choice if you love natural and unusual materials. It is definitely one of a kind, woven locally by Polish craftspeople. Basketry Master Helena cuts every leaf manually and then carefully weaves the bags.  

 

We can offer this bag to you thanks to our long-standing friendships formed during Serfenta’s basketry expeditions. By purchasing it, you support local Polish craft and Basketry Master Helena directly. 

You can choose elegant lining for your bag.

The fabric is double-sided (patterned/plain). It can be easily removed, washed, or replaced.  

Material: cattail (bulrush).

 

The bag is 100% handmade, so the dimensions may vary by 1 or 2 cm.
