This straw bag is handwoven by the artisan Hien on Cam Kim Island.

Each straw bag takes Hien approximately two days to weave, and is done to contribute to her income from running a small grocery stall in the nearby markets.

Hien hopes to support her two sons through university, and teach the other women in the village how to weave her iconic straw bags.
