Description

We love this striking clutch because it combines the handiwork of Lanten and Hmong artisans and exemplifies teamwork! We begin with soft natural cotton, woven by the Lanten who are skilled cotton growers and weavers.

Next, Hmong artisans use wax resist technique and indigo to create traditional geometric patterns. We add the leather details, including a wrist strap, to make this extra special. The final finishing is completed at the Living Crafts Centre in Luang Prabang.
