Beige Cotton Shoulder Bags
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 don't normally go for earth tones, but this bag was so interesting I couldn't help myself. The embroidery is so pretty, and the bag is very well made. Love the front pocket - perfect for my phone or Metrocard.
"Even if embroidery is a traditional skill for the women in our area and everybody can do it, I still need to learn more...."
