Details

This lovely leather handbag is hand sewn and hand painted in black, buff, and burnt sienna with a mosaic of traditional Javanese motifs similar to those found in batik, such as truntum, the star-flower motif that symbolizes growing love, and parang, the knife blade motif traditionally reserved for knights and royalty. The handbag has brown leather handles and a matching detachable shoulder strap. The interior compartment is lined in black polyester and secured with a zipper. The interior has three pockets--two close with a zipper, one of which acts as a center divider for the handbag, and one pocket is open. Four brass studs on the bottom of the handbag keep it raised slightly when put down, protecting the bottom leather surface. Artisan Farida Ridwan of Java handcrafts this handbag.

Should the bag get wet, the artisan recommends letting it dry slowly to avoid affecting the shape of the leather. Should the leather become dry over time, the artisan recommends conditioning the leather.

I wanted to find a small, nice looking wallet to hold cards. This wallet was perfect! It is feels smooth, is small enough to fit in a pocket, and still looks new despite daily use. Im very happy with this purchase!

"Fabulous bag!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This bag is large enough to carry many things, and the best part is that it holds it?s shape because of the leather! It will probably last longer than I do.

"A lovely crafted handbag"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

What a beautiful handbag! This cinnamon colored leather handbag is wonderfully crafted with intricate embossed designs. Like no other handbag that I have ever owned. Actually, it is the perfect size. Not too large and not too small. However it doubles as a handbag and a tote. I will surely enjoy it for many years to come. Mrs. Ridwan has gifted hands. I will enjoy this lovely handbag.

"Im a one-purse-at-a-time gal"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Ive been using a crossbody bag for a couple of years, and I was ready to go to leather. This one is so beautiful and different, I just cant get over it. I actually had to shorten the strap, and Im 57. It doesnt look like something so convenient. I just grab and go, and have my hands free to shop or whatever. I do sort of wish it had a zipper closure, but its plenty secure against me. And I got to come back for some nifty pouches to hold my stuff inside, so I dont have to worry about spilling everything if the snap comes loose.
