Borneo Bags was created in Auckland to support the last remaining semi nomadic tribe in South East Asia, the Penan, in their fight for survival against deforestation. 

Each bag carries a certificate of authenticity with the name of the weaver so you know exactly who made your special bag. Its of the finest quality. Each item goes through a Quality Control process before shipping.

Recyclable pallet strapping is the modern weaving substitute to the traditional rattan; it’s durable, washable (yes, you can simply rinse your bags) and comes in amazing eye-catching colours. We're putting a new spin on an age-old craft. 

For the ardent collector we have the traditional rattan range. This natural fibre takes over 3 months to harvest, prepare, soak in plant dyes and is sometimes even buried in the soil to achieve the desired colour!
