Akha Toiletry Bag
This toiletry bag, useful to carry your personal things during your holidays, is a product from the range offered by Thai Tribal Crafts, a self-help marketing agency established in 1973 with the main goal to provide opportunities for improving the quality of life of the tribal people in Northern Thailand.

The pattern of this bag has been crafted in the Akha tribal community. The Akha number about 48,500 people living in Thailand, and produce a traditional indigo-dyed cloth.

In order to produce this traditional cloth, Akha people weave the cotton into cloth with a foot-treadle loom. The cloth is then dyed with indigo grown in the gardens. It takes about one month of dipping and drying the cloth daily to produce the typical colour.

This cloth is embellished with silver ornaments, coins, beads, red-dyed feather tassels, seeds and many other items; there are indeed many decorations on the Akha traditional outfits. They also decorate their products like this toiletry bag with a bright-coloured appliqu?.

After the production of the traditional pattern in the village, raw materials are given to women in Chiang Mai who assemble the cloths and materials and finish the products. This process of production with skilled and trained men and women at each step ensures high-quality products.

When you buy this handcraft, 60% of its price goes to the craftsmen. You will enjoy travelling with this high-quality functional toiletry bag, and at the same time you will have the satisfaction of knowing that this purchase will help the tribe to raise its standard of living.
