Description: Crafted by Russian artisans using the ancient art of birch bark weaving, this bag is part LANA SIBERIE SS17 collection - ' INFINITE'. The straps are made from vintage handwoven linen, are attached with braided linen hair and are adorned with shells from Sochi shores. Birch bark has been used in Russia for production of household items and accessories for centuries, the secrets this tradition have been passed down from one generation to another. It is well known that birch bark is rich in betulin (birch camphor) and its components contain healing qualities such as anti-stress action, antispasmodic, an analgesic with powerful anti-fungal, antiviral, and anti-bacterial qualities.  

This 100% handmade, natural, plant-based tote bag is a contemporary take on the traditional craft with a healthy twist. It is suitable for vegans.


Lana Siberie crafts one of a kind items from handmade, vintage and natural materials. Sustainability, Mindfulness and Wellness are the main principals that govern the realms of the brand's universe.

* The weaving irregularity and colour variations that may occur in some of these fabrics are intrinsic to the hand process by which they were woven and dyed.
