Velvet, Satin and beautifully handmade fabric trim combine to make this a very special little purse. It is bigger than a coin purse, and can be used for many things - like cosmetics, credit cards, first aid or any number of ideas. The back is plain wine velvet and it has a zipper closure and black lining on the inside. This is an example of the craftsmanship of the Lahu Tribe in Thailand. This item is 6"wide x 6" high.

 This small purse was made by a member of the Lahu Hill 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.
