The Luis Mai Chau Bag is named after the region of that name in North Western Vietnam; a mountainous town full of natural wonder and ethnic cultures. The large bucket shaped shoulder bag showcases hand-weaved ethnic fabric from the North, combined with canvas and white and silver leather detailing.
Step out in style, the Luis Mai Chau will be your go-to everyday unique and gorgeous bag.
As with each one of Valerie Cordier's designs, the Luis Mai Chau Bucket Bag is full of surprises. The drawstring that closes the bag is a braided combination of Silver, Black, White and Grey Leather that culminates with hanging tassel features.
Valerie Cordier has often visited ethnic tribes in the Vietnam mountains and finds their woven fabrics the most beautiful and delicate in the world. She loves to add her updated colours and style to some of the patterns traditionally used, as she has done in this fabulous Bucket Bag.
“This is a perfect way to create my own exclusive, exquisite fabric and a good way to support the community. I like their traditional skills.”
Every detail and material in this Leather and Canvas Shoulder Bag has been sourced personally by Valerie in Northern Vietnam.
The Bag's Interior features a multi coloured purple, blue and white patterned fabric. The Luis comes complete with a removable coin purse.
Valerie oversees every detail of her bag's design and insists that the inside should be as unique as the exterior.

Valerie Cordier has found inspiration for her striking bags and wallets from the 14 years she has been living in Vietnam. Each bag is handmade at her workshop just outside of Hanoi. She feels lucky to have a skilful team that’s as passionate about the work as she is. “I chose them for the expertise and experience, and they trust my creative mind.
Every Valerie Cordier Bag has a past; with the wearer it has a future.
