Carved coconut shell discs take two forms on this handbag from Thai artisan Sasithon Saisuk--some are flowers and some are rings. The alternating discs cover a handbag that is fully lined in brown cotton and has a zipper closure. The bag also features a jaunty tassel with mango wood beads and a handy open pocket in the interior.
