This elegant, beautiful bag was re-designed for this year's collection. It is a medium dark chocolate-brown shoulder bag and has an elaborate purple/pink patch on front, highlighting unique fine-needlework embroidery, hand-stitched by Hmong tribals on superior "ethnic" sack cloth, considered luxurious by them. Zipper to open handbag; bronze-colored rings connect medium-sized handle to purse. Zippered hidden pocket on back, with more functional pockets inside. Each patch is slightly different in design, being handmade, and colors vary slightly too, from pink-ish, to reddish, to purple-ish. Bag is sure to dazzle!
Embroidered patches are designs traditionally found on Hmong skirts, and are used to express the individuality of each lady who wears them. Therefore, they vary somewhat on each purse.
Size: 10" X 13.5" X 4" (approx.)
Strap length: 11"

This bag, called "Simply Sophisticated," is possibly one of our most visually stunning bags. It is made for the self-assured woman. She doesn't need much, and she is satisfied with what she has. This beautiful bag catches the eye even from a hundred feet away.
The purse is black with a chocolate-and-cream cross-stitched band bordered with blue hand-made hemp batik; the cross-stitched piece is sewn on a special fabric (made of hemp) that was hand woven and dyed by the Small Flower Hmong tribals. This is a RARE, almost lost, art.
There are two zippered openings on top (one hidden) and one hidden zippered opening on the back. Inside, the largest compartment features a zippered pocket as well as two open pockets. The bag comes with interchangeable short and long straps. Sure to be a conversation piece every time you carry it.
