Three-in-one purse (embroidered)
In the mountains of North Vietnam, close to the border with China, live various ethnic minority groups, with the Hmong and the Dao amongst them. It is the women in these groups who work for their family's survival, many in the dyeing, weaving and embroidering material followed by the fabrication of clothes, bags and wall hangings.
Each larger purse contains two smaller ones, all made of the same embroidered material, and all closing with a zip.
Length of large purse: 8cms
