Vietnam 5 Acaat Messenger Bag



Whether you want the perfect bag for exploring abroad, or just in search of something easier to swing over your shoulder on the subway, this pack is for you. It’s forged from 840-denier water resistant ballistic nylon and lined with hand woven fabric from our partners in the Cham village of Vietnam. This particular slice of culture is wrapped in the finest embroidered fabric from the Hmong hill-tribes of Northern Vietnam. Each piece of embroidered fabric this size takes one artisan over a month to embroider. These truly are rare pieces of art and instead of belonging to a museum or gallery, we believe they should be interacted with, worn, loved, carried, and celebrated daily.

Exciting note: Each embroidered Thread, bag or accessory is unique and different from the rest. The images shown here are of only one style and the one you receive will be slightly different making it a fun surprise! The variation isn't huge, so don't worry. This is something we actively choose not to control... We let our Hmong artisans in Vietnam create whatever they want to create and we see that variation, difference and uniqueness as something special and worth elevating. In short, it means no one else in the world will have the same Thread style as you. Cool huh?!

To aptly quote Ralph Waldo Emerson -  "Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not."
