Gift of Ms Meuy Yaan Saeteurn

Navy blue cotton shoulder bag is embroiderred front and back with an "old style of embroidery" as the donor described it. The bag fastens at the top edge with a dark brown zipper. This cloth bag was embroidered and made by the donor, Meuy Yaan Saeteurn, while she lived in Laos, before 1985. She came to California from a Thailand Refugee Camp in 1985. She learned to embroider from her mother, from her grandmother and from friends.
