Description

Upcycling plays a big part in our creative process. For this envelope clutch, we collaborated with Akha artisans through our Village Weavers Project.

Inspired by the silver discs, coins and Job’s Tears seeds used to decorate their traditional clothes and headdresses, the Akha upcycle aluminium cans, fashioning them into matte, shimmery discs.

Embroidered onto hemp envelope clutches, the discs add some glamour, while the Job’s Tear seed trim frames the bag beautifully. Fully-lined with soft cotton and a snap closure.
