About our handwoven Grey Sedge pouch:

  • Size: 11.8 x 7.8 x1.18 "
  • The Dayak tribe in Borneo, Indonesia took the Purun plants from peat swamps around the village using a boat. The most difficult process is to pound the Purun until it becomes thin, before weaving them into pouches.
  • Purun is organic and easily decomposes, so this pouch is eco-friendly, 100% natural and reusable beyond our gift set.
