Description

Akha communities in northern Laos’ Phongsaly Province decorate their clothing with beads and embroidery. In collaboration with the Village Weavers Project, Akha artisans have adapted this traditional skill to create sweet little earrings embroidered with pumpkin-inspired motifs.

Steamed pumpkin, plus other vegetables, and spicy jeow or dipping condiment, are enjoyed at mealtimes in Akha communities. Lightweight and easy to wear, they are great for all ages. Makes a great souvenir or gift from Laos!

Due to the handmade nature of this product, it is only available in multi-colour fabrics. Please add comments on the checkout  if you have a preference for the color. We can offer: White or Pink or Blue
