Because cows are sacred in Nepal (and that's another whole story), the meat Nepalis eat is primarily water buffalo. Hence, the hide is a by product of meat production. Preparing the hide is a lengthy process, done completely by hand, using all local, natural, and organic materials. Then, they're designed and crafted by hand.
I love these rustic, open top shopping bags. All 3 sizes are some of my favorites. The small is a very simple, straight forward design wtih fat leather stitching up the front and back as well as some on the sides. The nice length handles are sewn on with some of the same stitching, and it has a leather toggle and loop for closure.

The water buffalo leather is tanned, designed, and crafted by hand in Nepal.
Appproximately 8.5" X 9.5" X 3".

*Each of my water buffalo leather products is unique. The colors vary greatly and the slight imperfections and irregularities only add to the charm of each piece.
Keep out of elements as much as possible. You can use leather products, but please understand that will likely change the color.
