Hmong Cotton Shoulder Tote Bag with Zipper

Hmong Cotton Shoulder Tote Bag with Zipper

Regular price $39.99

This shoulder tote bag is woven by the Hmong people of Northern Vietnam. Raw cotton is loomed by hand to create the base material. The cloth is then dipped in indigo dye repeatedly to give the dark blue/black color. Then in their free time, Hmong women spend hours creating the intricate needlework design that adorns the bag. Finally, the pieces are put together in to a beautiful, wearable piece of art.

This tote bag is used by both Hmong women and men in day to day life. The beautiful hand stitched design that adorns the front of the bag can take a skilled Hmong woman a week or more to complete.
