Thai Hill Tribe Bags

Thai, Burmese, Laotian and Vietnamese Hill tribe people make a lot of handicrafts including superbly woven and embroidered textiles. Each tribe, Hmong, Akha, Lisu, Yao/Mien, Karen, Lahu have their own style and sub groups within a tribe can have their own styles as well. Of course, much of this is no longer made or made in very small quantities as modern life reaches up into the hills. Some of these textiles get made into bags.

The use of vintage fabrics means that there may be slight imperfections…this only adds to the character of the bag, making it even more unique. It is part of the bag's charm.
