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, latin name Typha latifolia, is growing in the lake) is an extraordinary material: waterproof, ultralight, and extremely durable. You can take it with you everywhere!
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. For possessing cattail, you need to go into the lake and cut the material by hands. Basketry Master Helena cuts every leaf manually and then carefully weaves the bags. She weaves every bag with a heart and with a huge experience. It's a lot of work, but the effect is splendid, the bag is perfect in general and in details.
