Handmade from a group of skilled artisans called “The Floras de Choco”, they live in the cloudforest of Intag, Ecuador. These women use an ancient crafting technique to create products from cabuya, a native cactus fiber.
Every Minga bag has been ethically sourced for a mutually agreed upon, fairtrade price and provides work to our artisan partners, a collaborative group of 18 women living in a remote region of Ecuador. This reusable bag is perfect for trips to the market, a beach trip, your everyday purse, and more! Strong enough to hold fruits and veggies, or your essentials for a picnic, this bag will naturally stretch and expand with use.
