Fashionable handmade U-shaped water reed natural colored handbag is meant for everyday use. The finely woven ropes of Kauna grass are turned into this U-Shaped Kauna Hand Bag With Round Cane Handle.

Kauna grass is grown only in the wetlands of the Imphal valley in Manipur. Such  grass  and  the typical  weaving  pattern  of  the  Manipur  give  the  bags a  unique  appearance.  Such appearance  is  unlikely  to  have  from  the  similar  products  of  such  kinds  made  from  other regions. So this Kauna craftsmanship has a niche market and these bags have become urban exotic commodity.

Kauna is the local name for a reed or rush belonging to the family Cyperaceae. It has a cylindrical, soft and spongy stem which is woven into mats, square and rectangular cushions and mattresses by the women of the Meitei community of Manipur. The raw material for the craft is obtained by simple processing wherein the reed is cut near the base of the plant and dried in the sun. It is also smoked if it is to be preserved and stored for a longer time. The mats are woven by interlacing the stalks with jute threads using basic and simple tools.
