Description:

Working from their villages in northern Thailand, the Akha artisans craft this shoulder bag in the traditional cross-stitch embroidered Pamee pattern. In Pamee, geometric designs dominate. There can be found spades, mazes, screens, squares within squares, triangles, quadrilaterals etc. Depending on their mood, memories, imagination and their own taste, the women varies these traditional geometric designs, often mixing them with borrowings from other ethnic groups’ patterns, making the bag you will receive truly unique. This particular piece, named Pamee Magic, is hand-woven with cotton, colored from natural dyes and entirely decorated by hand.

About the Artisan:

This shoulder bag is entirely handcrafted by an Akha artisan. The making process starts with the harvest of cotton, which the woman then spins into rolls. After weaving and dyeing, she cuts a strip from the cloth and embroiders half of this, which will be the front of the bag. After attaching the shoulder strap she borders the design with color bands, rows of beads, cowries and coins to the extent desired, creating a spectacular decorative design.
