Red Dao Traditional Vietnamese Large Embroidered Shoulder Bag

A fair-trade carryall handmade by Vietnamese artisans


Why We Love This

This hand-embroidered satchel is sized to carry the essentials and keep them secure with a zip closure. Its pattern is stitched in bold contrast to the black cotton fabric. We love the rich texture of the precise handwork.


Embroidery is a significant craft in many Vietnamese villages and this bag is an example of the tradition of this culture. Meticulous pattern, stitched in rich tones, is hand-embellished by Ly Ta May, an expert embroiderer, who continues to pass ancient designs and methods down from generation to generation. The sale of this item helps develop sustainable communities by providing income while maintaining cultural traditions.
