A very versaitile size purse - ideal for holding personal items, a first aid kit, toiletries, small toys, or many other uses. The beautiful hand stitched embroidery is on one side and the other size is blank. The piping is satin and the carry handle is the same fabric as the lining on the inside.

This purse was made by a member of the Akha Tribe of Thailand, working with the cooperative Thai Tribal Crafts. The vision of Thai Tribal Crafts is to trade as a Fair Trading Organization by providing development opportunities for the tribal peoples of Northern Thailand so that they can have a better life.

Seven Hill tribes of Northern Thailand are involved in the project: the Akha, Hmong, Karen, Lahu, Lawa, Lisu and Mien groups, as well as many women working in Chiang Mai. They operate under the principle of fair trade: the main goal is to pay the producers the highest price as possible and sell the products at a price that is just adequate to meet expenses. Any financial gain realized beyond the basic needs goes back to the tribal people in the form of benefits.
