I finally found a producer of these. What a world we live in – one person can find a small company on another continent and form a business relationship with people she’s never seen.

I wanted woven hemp labels. But I learned that hemp is too coarse to weave, so they will be printed. They will have to be hand sewn onto the bags using the same fiber that the bags are made of – keeping it authentic and plant based.

One of the themes of this project is finding the balance between expected conventions of a luxury brand in the developed world and the preservation and celebration of an ancient original artpeice.

I think these tags will suit that balance.

Next steps: website development and packaging
