Leno Hemp Market Tote
In anticipation of the spring opening of her local farmers‘ market, Yvonne designed a lacy bag with a sturdy plain-weave bottom section to safely hold fresh produce.
She wove the handles using the same hemp but with a tighter beat for long-lasting wear.
This all-hemp bag is machine washable, making it just that much more useful.
