The Story Behind it & Why We Love It

The classic 'Pilwa' Bag is made for daily use as a purse to store your belongings or accompany you to the market to store your fruits and vegetables. They are hand woven by Indigenous women in Araucania, Chile.


They are traditionally woven by the Indigenous people of Chile named the Mapuches. "Pilwas" Bags are made using a plant known as "Chupon" or Gregahia Specia, one of nature's sturdiest materials.


Until a few years ago in the South of Chile, it was common to find a 'Pilwa' bag in every house because - they say those who use it - if it is taken care "it lasts a lifetime."


We love to use this bag as this purse to put our daily items in and as a decoration hung up in the house.

 

*These bags can hold up to 20 - 30 pounds and are very strong. 

Measurements: 17.5"h x 6"w
