Ikat Drawstring Pouch

$15.00 USD

We have transformed this popular textile into a practical and modern drawstring pouch. Produced by Phou Tai women in Savannakhet Province in southern Laos, the abstract motifs represent hooks, flowers, dragons, and the mythical Naga serpent.

These uniquely designed pouches are exclusive to TAEC and can be used for just about anything – a small carry-all for electronics, makeup, toiletries, or a handbag for day or evening!

Please note that as all motifs are hand-designed and use natural dyes, each piece is completely unique and represents the individual artists' style and process.

SIZE: 14 x 14 cm


Approximately 50% of the price of this product goes directly back to the village producers, who are mainly rural minority women. TAEC is certified by Fair Trade Laos, and promotes livelihoods based on traditional skills. To learn more, visit our "Handicrafts and Livelihoods" page.
