Who & How

WHOW Tote bags come with some Attitude; they are 100% handmade out of 100% Myanmar cotton.


The bags consist of 60% organic cotton, which is grown by smallholders, like U Kyaw Htun, in the villages around Monywa. After the harvest, the cotton is both machine and handspun before it arrives in Amarapura, where the twill is handwoven by Nandar and her team.


From here the yards are brought to Mandalay where U Than Thei makes the bags at his workshop at home. Eventually, Htet takes them to his place in Madaya to be hand screen- printed. Also, you should know that all our labels are hand-screen- printed by Htet.


ATTITOTE designs are created by the WHOW team. As our team is a mix of Mandalay locals and Europeans, the designs celebrate creative cross-cultural exchange.
