"beautiful quality and detail"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I have ordered three bags of this design in various color combinations, for myself and to give as gifts. I love the sturdiness of the fabrication and the beautiful fabrics, and each person who has received one has commented on the cool shape and the vibrant colors and patterns. I hope to soon order a table runner made by the same artists for the holidays .....thank you!

"Great size!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Bolster-shape zip case is larger than it seems in the pictures. Many more uses than just for cosmetics. I m adding it to my travel gear as a helpful packing cube. It will protect a few silk scarves or lingerie nicely. The weaving is so comforting. I can really feel this was made by an artisan s loving hands. Thank you. I will purchase again!

"Bright Spot!"

This is Indian but it works great in our Mexican themed screen porch. Wonderful colors. I would rather shop at Novica than buy mass-produced. The textiles, in particular, are unique and vibrant.

"Convenient size and color goes with everything"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is a convenient size when you dont want to take all the contents of your big bag with you. A cell phone and wallet fit in perfectly with room to spare. The cotton strap can be tied to adjust the length.

"Just big enough"

This is a zippy little bag just right for a cell phone, wallet and glasses. What more do you need? Simple is better.
