Javanese designer Wahyu Sulistiani selects a palette of burgundy on black for this cotton shoulder bag. Working with batik techniques on cotton, Sulistiani selects the sawunggaling pattern from Central Java, which depicts a majestic rooster owned by the king. The motif symbolizes the power and beauty of Javanese culture.
Lined in black, the bag features golden beadwork accents and opens to reveal a convenient zipper pocket.

"Beautiful and Functional too!"
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.
- As a purse or shopping tote
- Handy for travel
