Yao Opera Jacket
Mixed Threads & Materials
Handmade by the Yao, Muang Sing, Luang Namtha Province
Traditional Collar, Layered Edging and Embroidery Motifs
The traditional Yao jacket has always been a Ma Té Sai favorite, but the original length and shape was difficult to sell. Our modification maintains the spirit and hand-technique of the traditional jackets but with a more modern flare.
As part of our Muang Sing Project, Ma Té Sai works with women in remote areas of Northern Laos 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.
Estimated shipping from Laos: $27.00 USD
*Cost of shipping will be billed separately after the order is confirmed. Rates are calculated and applied per item. Orders with multiple products may qualify for better rates.
