Details

Embroidered by hand, hill tribe motifs tell of the Akha people's rich textile traditions. The patterns cover a generous front pocket on a cotton sling tote. By Jiap Rojjana, the bag is fully lined and an inner pocket with zipper keeps small items handy. Yellow cords and rain tree wood beads adorn the strap, and both the outer pocket and the purse close with coconut shell buttons.

Because each is an individual work of embroidery art, colors and motifs may vary slightly according to the artisan's inspiration.

"Delightfully unique!"

I love this bag. It is well-made with beautiful cloth and decoration. If they would offer this in black, i would buy another one! When I carry this, I feel chic but also supportive of artisans who make beautiful craft objects.

"Great Quality handbag"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This bag has really great quality! The fabric is sturdy and the stitching is in place. The buttons appear sewn on strong. The only thing is I thought this bag was going to be bigger. I am debating on giving this bag as a gift to someone or keeping it for myself. I love the inside zipper as well. Beautiful work by Jiap Rojjana.

"Loved this design"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This was a gift and the recipiant loved it. The only problem was that the dye was very heavy and it marked her hands. She is planning on washing it by hand to get some of the dye out.

This bag is simply Beautiful! Its very lightweight and the fabric is lovely, plus the elephant trim is a perfect touch. The bag is quite roomy and the zippered pouch is excellent for my phone. I also love the carved elephant button for the closure - so cute! Im so happy I bought this!
