Designed in Portland, Oregon, and crafted in Cambodia (Southeast Asia) by artisans who have been displaced from their farmlands by illness or war. The bag materials were originally used to transport animal feed, rice, and cement. These bags are vibrant, durable, and solidly made with full lining, pockets and zip closures. They are also super lightweight and water-resistant! If this fabric can transport cement it can certainly trounce anything your beach party can dish out!
