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.

"Cute bag with many uses"

Love the detailing on the front of this bag. Size is just right for those "lighter" days. may even use to tote quick lunch items or to pack for concert or events.

"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"

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.

"Cute bag!"

Got this for christmas one year and I have no complaints, except that the wood beads chip in the wash. I think it said handwash, but as I dont have a clothes line for drying and I have cats so it needs washing, Ill just have to be a little careful with it.

I really like this bag. Good for summer use. The buttons on the one I received look like elephants. The embroidery is very pretty. This would make a nice gift.

Wonderful gift for my grand daughter. I have not seen the pruchase in person but judging form my daughter's and grand daughters responses over the phone they loved the gift and they are hard to please. Keep on doing the good work you are doing, you have made us very happy. Austin, Texas
