Ethnotek also have a new travel blog worth checking, it is an attempt to increase transparency between Ethnotek customers and villagers that create the "Threads" for the bags. The blog gives you a detailed look into the lives, techniques and just how much goes into Ethnotek bags. Have a look at the video after the jump, it introduces the artisans and gives an inside look into the intricate weaving techniques that create their colorful THREADS.
