Jaunty bohemian bag handmade from one-of-a-kind vintage Hmong embroidery. This bag contrasts chic, black and white striped details with brightly colored geometric patterns. Super useful, adjustable strap allows for a sporty crossbody style, or a shorter shoulder bag, making this a fantastic bag for those on the go- especially whilst traveling! Open and zippered inner pockets allows to you access selected items in a pinch.
Each bag measures approximately 12" x 10"
Each piece is hand made by Na and Pha in northern Thailand from vintage Hmong material. This lovely Hmong couple seek out only the most beautiful vintage textiles in their tribal villages. From the shape of these textiles, they painstakingly create each modern piece.
The crafts of the Hmong people, amongst other Hill Tribes, are quickly becoming lost to cheap fast fashion, mechanization, and urbanization. Na and Pha are working to keep the traditional crafts alive with their own work, and by maintaining an open door policy for the children in their community. Whenever the kids are left on their own, Na and Pha invite them into their home and shop to learn the traditional Hmong crafts.
We work directly with artisans, and pay fair wages for their work. With each purchase of Na and Pha’s collection, you not only contribute to their income as working artists, but also contribute to the continuation of the incredible artistic traditions of the Hmong people.
