Ahka Cotton Purse
The Ahka from Northern Laos are known for their intricate headdress that is embellished with silver discs and decorations. This bag was inspired by tradition and innovated for today. Instead of using silver for these bags, the women upcycle aluminum cans. They also use traditional Job’s Tears seeds to complete the design. This purse features a zip closure and lined interior.
