"Aroma" is the latest addition to our handy small bag collection. It is a versatile, extremely convenient dark coffee-colored pouch. With three separate zippered compartments, it will keep you super-organized. It comes with two straps, one long in case you want to sling it cross-body, and one short and sturdy, if you want to carry it.
Adorned with striking hand-crafted embroidery on the front, made by our hard-working Hmong village ladies.
It is a little larger than our small "Adventurous" pouch, and is perfect for travel - just throw in everything you need - keys, cash, coins, phone, and ID. It is large enough to accommodate even the larger smart phones.
We can't think of anything handier! You've got to get one!

We are excited about our second unisex bag! This ultra-cool vertical, ethnic cross-body bag is sturdy and functional, too. We can see it holding your tablet or even one of the smaller laptops. It comes in a quality rough-feel, dark fabric, has a secure zip top, comfortable adjustable strap, lining, zipped inner pocket AND a zipped outer pocket on the back.
The design on the front flap is completely unique: hand-made and hand-dyed Hmong fabric, with two columns of subtle hand-created designs on each side. In true Hmong ethnic fashion, it comes with colored pom-pom style tassels, but you can easily snip these off if you don't want them. You can be sure no one else has anything like this - totally unique, totally you.
The two variations we have are very similar:
Birchwood Red has the hand-made design edge in red (as shown in picture). Birchwood God has the same edge in a subtler yellow (we do not have a picture as yet). Pom-pom tassels vary in color on each bag.
Bag dimensions: 12.2" x 10" x 2" depth. Strap: 58.3" long and 1.2" wide.
