There is something really magical about bright colors put together in intricate patterns and designs. The Hmong people of Thailand are known for their embroidery skills and their flair with patterns and colors. This bag, hand-crafted in Thailand, is an amazing example of traditional Hmong design with a modern twist. This bag is meant to be noticed; with its bright colors, fun patterns and leather fringe. This beautiful bag is also available in a stunning black and white pattern.
Here is a little bit about our artisans: Drawing upon the master craft-making techniques that have been a part of their culture for generations, our artisans skillfully handcraft these beautiful pieces individually, combining contemporary designs with ancient traditions. In Thailand, we work with about 25 artisans, mostly of Hmong heritage located outside Chiang Mai, Thailand. This village industry provides families an opportunity to maintain the tradition of handcrafting while sharing an expression of their indigenous culture with the world. By respecting cultural tradition, creating a cooperative working atmosphere, and paying sustainable wages, these women and their families have become empowered with new skills and have an opportunity for economic stability.
