This is my first native (rattan) sling bag aptly called Amihan Sling. I purchased this through Hinabi.ph. I got interested in the bag after seeing my friend post (or share) about it on Facebook.Â
What’s so interesting about this bag is that it was made (one of the many products weaved and produced) by Alangan Mangyan Tribe from Paitan in Oriental Mindoro.
According to Hinabi.ph, they are helping the Mangyans bring their handicrafts to a wider audience. Check out their FB page here.
Back to my sling bag. I bought the large size to accommodate important things when going out. I picked the one with dark brown leather strap, which Rei (from Hinabi.ph) said is free vegan leather made by the local leather artisans of Marikina.Â
So, what do you think of my Amihan Sling? I’m just excited to use it soon.Â
