Tafolod Tote Bag
MoMA Exclusive: Taiwanese designers Shane Liu and Yun Fan Chang conceived the Tafolod Tote Bag while living among the Makuta’ay, an indigenous tribe in Taiwan, for three months. Each canvas bag is handwoven by various members of the tribe, based on a traditional technique which involves weaving rattan to connect pieces of stone to make pestles for crushing ice. “We love the cultural roots that exist in Taiwan,” says the designers. “We are now providing jobs in the village and many young people are starting to learn about crafts. We hope to help keep traditions alive.” The Tafolod Tote Bag has an adjustable leather strap so it can be worn crossbody or over the shoulder, a snap closure, and an interior pocket. It’s made of cream cotton canvas that’s lightly coated with resin for durability and vegetable-tanned leather. It measures 13.3h x 10.25w x 6"d and can hold a 13” laptop.
