Product Description

A completely different look for your backpack.  Hand-embroidered by Hmong Hill Tribe women in northern Thailand working under fair trade conditions, the fabric is that used for traditional clothing by the Hmongs. Features include 2 full-length and full-width zippered sections that can hold books, binders, laptop and more, along with a smaller zippered section on the front.  It also has 2 exterior pockets for cell phone, water bottle, or anything you need to grab quickly.  

Adjustable, padded straps are 3" wide to distribute the weight more evenly on your shoulders.

Approximately 12" wide, 7" deep and 17" high.  Very roomy, fabric is sturdy and durable.

Artist's Story:

This one-of-a-kind bag is handmade by women artisans of the Hmong Hill Tribes in Northern Thailand using upcycled and embroidered traditional fabrics. The Hmong fled to Thailand in the 70's to escape persecution in their homeland of Cambodia.

The fair trade income they earn from your purchase helps to economically empower these women, improve their quality of life, and preserve tradition and cultural legacy in their communities.
