Akha Yalupubay Earrings
Mixed Threads and Job's Tear Seed Beads
Handmade by the Akha, Muang Sing, Luang Namtha Province
The “Yalupubay” is one of the decorations that hangs from traditional Akha dress. We discovered this charm amidst a cluster of tassles and beads while visiting an Akha village in a remote area of Northern Laos. Matesai is currently working with this village to design and develop fresh product and provide access to the international market. Purchase of this product directly provides income to each individual woman, as well as their families and their village.
Our items are hand made from the village and therefore are not all exactly the same. When selecting products you may find they are a little different than the photo. Patterns, colors and stock are constantly rotating and changing; Availability depends on supplier and materials. Out of stock items may take several weeks to make. Please email us for large orders, custom orders, and inquiries.
