"Aroma" Coffee-Brown Pouch - New!
"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.

This elegant, beautiful bag was re-designed for this year's collection. It is a medium dark chocolate-brown shoulder bag and has an elaborate purple/pink patch on front, highlighting unique fine-needlework embroidery, hand-stitched by Hmong tribals on superior "ethnic" sack cloth, considered luxurious by them. Zipper to open handbag; bronze-colored rings connect medium-sized handle to purse. Zippered hidden pocket on back, with more functional pockets inside. Each patch is slightly different in design, being handmade, and colors vary slightly too, from pink-ish, to reddish, to purple-ish. Bag is sure to dazzle!

"Eternity" Embroidered Wall Hanging
These are rare, elaborate, hand-embroidered with almost microscopic detail, eye-catching wall hangings in jewel colors. Part of the "Eternity" collection, each beautiful piece of art will adorn your walls for years to come. The story behind these is that the elaborate handiwork has its origins in tribal Hmong women's traditional head-pieces. These are truly works of art that the women spend countless hours creating. When some of them were short of money, our partners stepped in and suggested, "Why don't you craft these pieces into wall-hangings?" and the Eternity Collection was born.
You will find that each piece is unique because of this, as they reflect the personal creativity of the village women.
The product ships unframed, and each piece varies size, and shape. Styles reflect approximate product dimensions, including the black border.
