Indian Hand Woven Cotton Handbags
I live in the Bering Strait region of Alaska-Russia, and the design on this bag is very similar to patterns Inupiat and Yupit women sew with black and white calf skin into parka and mukluk trim. I love the intersection of cultural design - and I love wearing it!
I didn't realize when I ordered this bag that it's a bolster shape (round on both ends rather than flat like a regular makeup case). I LOVE it! This is a perfect sized bag to tote around a small knitting project--it is the right shape to hold a good sized skein of yarn and is roomy enough for a pair of 8" straight needles or nearly any size of circular needles or dpns. The woven fabric is substantial and the bag is fully lined but it's not bulky or heavy. It's a very nice piece.
