"Unique, artful, beautiful colors, and useful, as well!"

This handbag is absolutely beautiful! The colors are both gentle and calming (the blues and greens) and eyecatchingly bright -- (the beautiful berry/wine colored section down the center, which also incorporates lots of other colors.) This bag has a wonderful texture to it, as well. I love that it was loom-woven, and is also one-of-a-kind. Its sturdy, and a useful size, as well, and easily holds my (large) wallet, phone, and other necessities.

"Appropriate name!"

This is much roomier than the small shoulder bags, and can hold a wallet and papers as needed. Same soft feel and beautiful colors. A work of art.

Best Uses
