Assam Hargila Canvas Utility Pouch - Black
The Hargila or the Greater Adjutant Stork, named after an adjutant (military officer) because of its stately manner and habit of standing motionless for long periods of time, is a carnivore and scavenger. A migratory bird, the greater adjutant formerly found in South and Southeast Asia, and now restricted to just two small and separate breeding populations; one in Assam, India and one in Cambodia, also visits Vietnam, Thailand and Burma when not breeding. But loss of nesting habitat and feeding sites has had a huge impact as suitable wetland habitats are cleared, drained, polluted and disturbed by humans. These birds have been called ugly but they are symbols of Assam and their decline is a reflection on the sad state of environmental affairs of the region.
Our utility pouches are suited for small-sized everyday items which can be flexibly used for all occasions. It can fit amongst your army of cosmetics or be the go-to pouch for your phone, wallet, and keys when you step out for a casual walk. They are made in cotton canvas with screen printing in front. The prints are inspired by the sights, scenes and symbols of the North East. The pouch has a zipper closure to protect your valuables.
