In the mountains of Mexico, the ancient craft of making net bags has survived to the present day. The nets are made by hand over a period of several weeks, in which natural sisal leaves are transformed into the extremely stretchy Cho’jac bag. Traditionally, the net bag is worn with a single leather strap across the forehead in order to transport heavy loads.
The string bag is the modern form of the Cho’jac: pure handcraft, made from natural materials, each piece is stylish, practical, and one-of-a-kind.
This Cho’jac item was lovingly made, exclusively by hand, in traditional workshops in and around Berlin.
The net is made from 100% tear-resistant Sisal Agave fibre and all naturally dyed with soot and spiderweb. The extra thick leather handles come from German cattle and were tanned using natural methods. Through increasing wear, the leather gains a unique patina.
– Hardcore handcraft in its purest form.
With the flick of a wrist, the string bag can be turned into a shoulder bag. The net is ca. 30cm long with a width of 20cm, and stretches further depending on its contents. Weighing only about 100 grams, the Cho’jac String Bag is definitely a light-weight.
Note: All components are highly durable and either repairable or replaceable. The metal rivets can be unscrewed and reused.
