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.
