This Akha Hill Tribe jacket was purchased in Laos in the late 1960's. It is made of homespun hemp cloth, hand dyed with indigo. The fabric was woven by hand on a traditional loom. The back has a large exquisitely embroidered and appliqued panel.

The jacket is a small size, as it was pre-owned and not made for the tourist trade. The measurements are chest = 34", length = 21" and sleeve from shoulder = 21", or about 52" from sleeve end to end.

The embroidery and decorative work is stitched by hand - I have included photos of the reverse.

The Akha are an indigenous hill tribe who live in small remote villages in the mountains of Thailand, Myanmar, Laos, and Yunnan Province in China. My items come from a friend and nurse who worked in the area in the 1960's and 1970's.
