Description

Akha communities in northern Laos’ Phongsaly and Luang Namtha Province decorate their clothing with beads and embroidery. These artisans have adapted this traditional skill to embroider glasses pouches with classic, nature-inspired motifs. Lightweight and easy to carry, these glasses pouches are great for all to keep your glasses safe. The outer layer is Lanten cotton decorated with colorful embroidery and the inside is a foamy protective layer. 

Due to the handmade nature of this product, it is only available in multi-color embroidery. Please add comments at checkout if you have a preference for the color. We’ll try our best to send you what you prefer.

Since October 2019, in collaboration with the Enhanced Integrated Framework (EIF), we’ve been working with artisans from 6 different villages and 3 provinces. We help them develop ranges of handicrafts that combine craftsmanship and tradition with realistic creativity and market knowledge. Our team of weavers, dyers, designers and tailors transfer their skills to aid artisans to make a better living from handicrafts. 

Made in collaboration with Akha artisans through our Village Weavers Project. The outer layer is embroidered in the villages and the glasses pouches are tailored and assembled at our Living Crafts Centre. Learn more about the Akha.
