Going Tribal

I have a bit of a predilection for all things folksy, boho and ethnic. Whether it's Mongolian/Persian/Thai/Indian/Peruvian, I love it all. The handiwork that goes into these types of pieces always amazes me, and it has a certain perfect-imperfection that machine-made textiles and goods just don't have. This aesthetic was also the inspiration behind my global weddings invitation line for Fine Day Press.

So, of course, these bags by Dazzling Lanna are on my hit list. The handmade ethnic totes are constructed using vintage fabric from Thailand and India. Many of the bags are made from vintage Hmong baby carriers. Visit her etsy shop for lots more wonderful bags.
