Details

Two colorful birds wing across this beautiful blue handbag from Wahyu Sulistiani. Created in batik on cotton, the sawunggaling motif depicts the king's favorite rooster, which is a symbol of Javanese beauty and power. Lavish beadwork is applied by hand, and the roomy tote — lined in black — opens to reveal a convenient inner pocket.

"Absolutely Gorgeous"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I purchased this handbag to go with a navy velvet outfit and also with a navy cashmere and silk outfit. Both outfits are dressy, but not what I would call formal. The bag works perfectly not only with both blue outfits, but there is also enough brown in the purse to go with a chocolate silk outfit, too. The hand beading is so beautiful. The blue cotton is a very thick material so it is a very substantial piece. The bag is larger than I had anticipated, but that is a good thing for me, as I carry a lot of items in my purse, and they all fit in this bag. Thank you so much, Wahyu, you are an incredible artist.

"Beautiful, but you must be very careful with it."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is a beautiful purse, however, you must be very careful with it. I am a bit hard on my purses because I take buses and the trolley. After 2 months it started to have some loose strings that I had to cut off. It is not meant to be used every dayy.

"Beautiful Functional Art"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

A beautiful handbag embellished with gold color beads. I have one of Wahyus purses in green and it has been wearing and delighting me well. The blue is nice and not too super bright. The embroidery in Bali style is exquisite. Whoever gets this bag is very lucky.

The picture doesnt come close to giving this purse justice. Its more than just a pretty bag, its a work of art. I was amazed with the incredible bead work, craftsmanship and vibrant colors.

"Even prettier in real life"

The beading is ridiculously pretty. Sadly, Im sometimes rough on my belongings and the beading eventually started coming loose but after I carefully snipped off the loose beading I had a slightly different but still gorgeous bag.
