Ethnotek's Bagan Bag is a unisex lifestyle satchel that is worn over the shoulder and fits into all your everyday adventures to carry non-bulk essentials. A front zipper pocket is ideal for storing quick grab accessories and has two built in slip pockets for a phone, keys or sunglasses. The main compartment zips open to store enough items for a day trip out on the city or to the market. The base of the Ethnotek Bagan Bag is made from water-resistant, heavy-duty, ballistic nylon to protect the contents of your bag from the wet or dirty ground when setting the bag down. The shoulder strap is adjustable to many heights and is made from soft, shiny and durable nylon seatbelt webbing.
“Bagan” is a shortened version of Ba-Gang from one of the most popular legends in Vietnamese folklore “Tui Ba-gang”. (Tui means bag in Vietnamese. Ba means three and Gang is a traditional measurement between thumb and forefinger).
PLEASE NOTE: As THREADs are made by hand by local artisans, the pattern and colour order may vary slightly from piece to piece, but will be representative of the bag you have purchased.

“Versatile and eye-catching bag. I had my eye on this bag for quite a while, having to wait what seemed like ages for it to be back in stock again. As soon as i was notified that rushfaster had some in stock i ordered one. The bag arrived quicker than i expected and it has met all my expectations and more. The best bit is that spending the money on this bag also helps my ethical conscience as it helps to retain ethnic textile producers and provides a source of income for them while they produce something beautiful that i can appreciate everyday.”
