Product Details
This woven bag is made of pandan leaves. In the Philippines, it is traditionally used to make purchases - that's why it is called 'Market bag' or 'The grocery bag'. It is dried indoor to prevent it from crumpling and coated with durable finishing. Our designers and weavers made some spin off from its traditional look to make it them trendy and fashionable. This Hooya Bag named "Napulog Isa" is the 11th of the exclusive design (the name is 11 in Hiligaynon, the language in Negros) with the theme "Singapura". Our founder lives in Singapore and Shop Houses are one of the popular structures in the country that stood the test of time.

The Story Behind Uaona
Shel Bridgewater, Founder

Introducing Uaona, uniquely handwoven bags from Negros, Philippines. We offer uniquely created bags that are durable, handmade, lightweight, and timeless.

While our company is based in Singapore, our products are produced by indigent people of Negros, whose livelihood comes from weaving and selling these bags. Buntal, pandan and buri weaving is one of those dying small industries that we want to support. Most of the weavers are elder people and we want to be able to revive this industry that is part of the Filipino history and culture. I am in high hopes that if the interest and trend picks up for hand-weaved bags, the younger generations would carry on with this weaving tradition.

My mother's birthplace is Negros, hence the name Uaona, which means "homeland" in Hawaiian.
