Karen Style Embroidered Tote Bag
A high quality, hand-made traditional Karen style tote bag. Naturally dyed and embroidered to to your liking.
These high quality, hand-made tote bags are an excellent example of the skills by our Karen village tailor. Each one of our bag designs is hand-made by her on a made-to-order basis. Choose from a variety of natural dye colours and embroidery designs to create your own one-of-a-kind bag.
In keeping up the tradition of the hand-made production and wisdom of the Karen people, our bags are woven using the traditional back-strap loom to weave natural and local plant-based colour dyed cotton yarn, and embroidered with seeds of grass. The process of clothes making is slowly disappearing with chemical dye yarn and factory made clothes. These products are all environmentally friendly.
Karen people are a minority group living in the northern mountain area of Thailand that have their own culture and traditions. The techniques used in making our bags have come from the same techniques used in creating their farming and hunting bags, creating a very durable, high-quality product.
