Akhas women – Shan State, Myanmar

This picture has been taken in the surrounding of Kengtung in one of the many Akhas villages. Akhas women are wearing a hat made with silver coin and balls. They never remove it not even for sleeping or going to the fields. It is part of their culture. Most of the wealth of the family is actually gathered on this hat.
