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.

This is extremely well made, gorgeous colors, roomy, and a good size. The elephants are so cute, and the walnut shell button makes the purse.

"Vibrant and useful!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is the first time I like seeing my bag just laying on the table. It fits comfortably across my chest and it holds everything I need, even a journal and a book if I want to! The medallion bends if you smash it into a motorcycle saddlebag, but it bends right back. Love it.
