Each yoga mat bag is unique. Easy to use and has enough room for all you need to go to class. The zipper provides easy access for your mat. The zippered pocket has room for; phone, wallet, keys, etc. with extra room for a small water bottle or accessories such as a yoga strap. Designed using local unbleached cotton.
This 26" x 6" diameter yoga mat bag is made to suit standard yoga mats - 173cm (68") long, 60 cm (24") wide, up to 5mm thickness. Each bag has a double layer of fabric at each end. The strap is connected with double stitching to ensure endurance.
The Hmong are traditional handicraft makers and the quality of their work is unsurpassed by other sewers in Thailand. The yoga bags are crafted in locally sourced and lovely soft pre-washed natural cotton canvas and make an important contribution to household income for both women.
Shua is a housewife and the most experienced with handicrafts. She works on her industrial sewing machine, with a practiced eye. Da has been mentored by her, she also works as a house cleaner and her husband is a gardener.
Their work is unreliable and seasonal so they are very happy with the extra work. The income from the bags is used to supplement their daily expenses, for food and clothing for their children and to pay the bills.
