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.

"Absolutely gorgeous and incredibly comfortable."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

These masks are even better than the pictures. Wahyus craftsmanship is top drawer. These are incredibly well made and the textiles are stunning. The jewel tones are rich and deep and the alignment of the patterns is perfect. The ear straps are wrapped and ruched which makes them very, very comfortable. The shape of the masks on the face is well fitted. These really exceeded my expectations in every way. More than functional, these are a beautiful fashion accessory. I really appreciate this artist!

"I love this bag"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

You think it is beautiful in the picture but it is even better in person. Sadly, Im a little rough on my things and the beading started coming off, making my bag look patchy but I carefully removed the rest of the beading and the fabric without the beading is still a beautiful bag. I
