Darth Vader Hilltribe Cape
One of our most popular items (and for good reason), the Darth Vader Hilltribe cape is villain meets zen in one, trans-seasonal piece.
Features an oversized hood (for hiding!) with neon hilltribe accent trim and a single wooden button closure. Made from black supersoft, light weight, 100% woven cotton. Direct from the Hmong Hilltribe in Northern Thailand, the one size fits all ‘Vader Cape’ is our monthly pick for ‘cannot go wrong’ online purchase!
What are Hill Tribes? There are six major ethnic tribes in Northern Thailand, the Hmong, even more than the other tribes, practice a strict male-female division of labor. The Hmong are a diligent, patient, and independent people, fond of wearing their silver ornaments during ceremonies and much devoted to the sky spirit they believe has created both the world and their own ancient way of life.
Note: Our handcrafted items adhere to Fair Trade principles, we deal with the women and their families directly. We are proud to be a part of this self sustainable industry, particularly to the women artisans creating these stunning pieces. Due to the handmade nature of the cape variations in pattern, textile and colorway differ slightly per order. Pictures are indeed indicative of style/colorway but should be treated as a guide.
