Hemp Tablet Sleeve

Ten Thousand Villages

Don't leave your electronics out, they deserve style too! Hmong women from Vietnam created this tablet sleeve by spinning hemp fibers into threads, which they then wove together to create amazing designs.

The artisans behind this hemp tablet sleeve are part of Craft Link, a nonprofit, that provides work for Vietnamese artisans, particularly artisans with disabilities and those who are part of ethnic minorities.

Details:

  • 10 inches long x 8 inches wide
  • Handcrafted by artisans in Vietnam
