The art of Thailand’s Hmong hill tribe colors this versatile shoulder bag. Anchalika Chamnan sews the bag from hemp with a cotton lining. Florid and hypnotic patterns decorate the bag, as well as a longan wood spear. Two smaller pockets complete the practical allure of the bag, one inside and one under the frontal flap. These close with a zipper. The main bag closes with the flap.
There are two distinct communities within the Hmong people. Women from the White Hmong community produce some of the most unique and beautiful needlework ever to be seen. Women from the Blue Hmong community are the only producers of batik cloth among the tribal people. Their attires are widely recognized for their rich ornamentation which includes magnificent embroidery, appliqué, cutwork, pom-poms, batik cloth and silver jewelry.
