Cotton handbag

SKU: 154086
Embroidered by hand, hill tribe motifs tell of the Akha people's rich textile traditions. The patterns cover a generous front pocket on a cotton sling tote. By Jiap Rojjana, the bag is fully lined and an inner pocket with zipper keeps small items handy. Yellow cords and rain tree wood beads adorn the strap, and both the outer pocket and the purse close with coconut shell buttons.

Because each is an individual work of embroidery art, colors and motifs may vary slightly according to the artisan's inspiration.

    Cotton Yes! Leather No!

    Fabric, hand embroidered handbags are the best. Leather is too heavy to lug around. My niece loved it!

    I really like this bag. Good for summer use. The buttons on the one I received look like elephants. The embroidery is very pretty. This would make a nice gift.

    Cute bag!

    Got this for christmas one year and I have no complaints, except that the wood beads chip in the wash. I think it said handwash, but as I don't have a clothes line for drying and I have cats so it needs washing, I'll just have to be a little careful with it.
