Hard to decide? Ask your friends :)

As the fisherman pants have no pockets, the Thai and Lao people have a tradition of carrying shoulder bags or yams. Buddhist monks were the first to utilize yams, as their robes had no pockets.

These Yam bags are made by the Akha Hill Tribe in Northern Thailand. They are "Vintage" and show wear and tear, which we think makes them even better.

Yams are typically used by the men in the tribes, but outside of the tribes yams cross gender lines and can be appreciated by everyone.
