These Fair Trade Hmong Embroidered bags are simply stunning!
These funky and beautiful bags are made with an amazing piece of jewel coloured fabric woven by the HMONG hill tribes of Lanna Country (Northern Thailand). This bag model has a double braided black shoulder strap finished off with pom pom accessories and a bright pink internal cotton lining with an inner zipper pocket for your keys and personal effects. The bag itself can be zipped shut courtesy of the zip enclosure that goes across the width of the bag which has a cute zipper pull made of pink satin fabric with coloured pom poms on the ends with little coloured wooden beads.
This really is the perfect unique bag to use at the beach, as a summer handbag, at a music or summer festival, as a handluggage bag, shopping tote bag or perhaps even as a small overnight bag! They are light to carry and can be flatpacked in a suitcase as well, making it the ideal travel companion or to send as a gift.

WHAT IS HMONG EMBOIDERY?
The Hmong people are known for their exquisite textile art and needlework skills. Importantly, these traditional skills are passed down from generation to generation. Hmong emboidery is identified by their use of bold and brightly coloured motifs and threads, traditionally incorporated into their traditional elaborate clothing as well as ‘story cloths’ that depicted the history of their people.
