Description

These hand-embroidered and handspun tea towels are super absorbent, thus perfect for drying hands and dishes. And when they’re not in use, they add some style to your kitchen with their colorful Akha embroidery!

Akha communities in northern Laos’ Phongsaly Province decorate their clothing with beads and embroidery. The Akha artisans have adapted their traditional skills to create playful, contemporary clutches.

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 fabric is woven by Tai Lue artisans in Luang Prabang province, and the embroidery work is done by Akha artisans in Phongsaly province.
