Our very popular backpack! Made of high-quality denim with an eye-catching patch of hand-made cross-stitch and rare hand-made hemp batik fabric. High on convenience and style.
Zippered pocket at the back, buttoned-down flap with decorative patch, another zippered pocket under flap, zippered main compartment, and more pockets and flaps inside, enough to keep you well-organized. Extremely sturdy, yet comfortable back-straps. Additional handy short strap on top, so you can also use it as a carry-bag.
Our customers find it perfect as a gym bag or just a perfect, stylish bag that goes everywhere with them!
Since the patch is hand-made, there are slight differences in colors and designs, but will be pretty close to the pictures here (red, brown, pink (few), dark, and the ever-popular salmon are now back in stock). Hemp batik is blue-and-white for all of them.
Bag measures 17" high and 14" wide, approximately. Each strap is 15.5" long.

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.
