Dr. Jane Goodall is the world’s most well known expert on chimpanzees and a fervent activist for animal and environmental conservation, we were honoured to be able to present her with this exquisite bag, named after her.
Uncle Ng, as he is fondly known, is aged 62 and has 3 children. He is a self-taught artisan who learned to weave using books and magazines, and has been making bamboo rattan crafts for the last 30 years. Uncle Ng is one of the finest rattan weavers in Peninsular Malaysia. His skills have been helping to support his family even though he has been unable to walk due to childhood polio since the age of 3. Earth Heir has been working with Uncle Ng for more than five years and we are proud advocates of the #MadeinMalaysia ethos.
This Jane Baghas been lovingly woven by Uncle Ng and we hope you will find joy and utility using it.
