Cotton shoulder bag, 'Hypnotic Poppy' (Thailand)

Hypnotic and elegant, this handbag from Anchalika Chamnan recalls the distinct art of the Hmong hill tribe. Throughout the centuries, the Hmong people have supported themselves through the cultivation of opium poppy; now people are turning away from this activity and replacing it with a sublime needlework to supplement their income. The cotton bag is lined and has a small pocket inside. The bag also features an adjustable strap, and a zipper closure.
