The AgBag Project is a response to the large amount of plastic waste associated with today’s agricultural system. Our goal is to repurpose drip irrigation into durable, functional, and stylish products. All AgBag products are hand woven to ensure quality as well as supply meaningful and creative jobs for people within the United States. Thanks for supporting products made sustainably.
I am originally an east coaster from New Hampshire and migrated west to Washington State in 2009. The idea for the AgBag Project was created from a synthesis of my interests and education, by combining agriculture, the environment, and art. I learned to weave during a visit to a friend’s house in Maine. Her Mother taught us how to weave Adirondack style backpacks using reed. I loved my backpack and was amazed at the amount of uses I could find for it. Sadly my backpack started to grow mold on it because it had been exposed to moisture and not put in the sun afterwards.
After 6 years of working on farms in different parts of the world and countless hours of dealing with “drip tape” I realized it would be the perfect material for weaving an Adirondack basket! I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
