I used my Beaded Batik Black and Burgundy Cotton Shoulder Bag all last Summer and got complements every time! It is light, but very durable. Fits over my shoulder comfortably leaving my hands free for shopping. I love the handy zippered pocket inside for smaller items and my cell phone. It snaps shut so its contents are secure. The sewing and beading are of excellent quality. I am buying another one for a friend and maybe another design for myself.
