Tote - Block print and embroidery

$50.00

Large tote bag with top zipper closure, and slit pocket + zipper pocket in front. The bag is made from a mix of hand-embroidered fabric and block print fabric, and has a lot of cute details including a wooden button at the top and small pom-poms attached to the front pocket zipper.

Note: Throughout the pandemic, the bag has been waiting around in the Borderline store, so it has a little discoloration from being on display for so long.  This is also why the bag is selling at a reduced price (regular price $65).

Borderline Collective in Mae Sot, Thailand

Borderline Collective is located in Mae Sot, which is about the closest you get to Myanmar, while still being on the Thai side of the border. The shop/restaurant/art gallery/creative space was started with the purpose of supporting migrant and refugee women from Myanmar, by helping the women sell their handmade products. The women are organized in smaller, autonomous, collectives based in the small villages along the border, and Borderline Collective provides a space for the women to showcase their products, and thus reach a larger customer base.
