A mini backpack with adjustable straps that are definitely sized for a youth or adult. This bacpack has a tubular shape with a drawstring top and a buckle down flap over the drawstring. There are contrasting wooden beads on the drawstring. There is a zippered pocket on the front .

The main part of the backpack is 9” (23 cm) tall and is approximately 5” (13 cm) in diameter.

This mini backpack was made by a member of one of the Karen 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.
