Leather fringe surrounds an original basket handbag. Paul Nurture designs a handbag from natural fibers, giving a second use to corn husks. Conscious of ecology, he weaves the fibers by hand, trimming the piece and covering the handles with raffia. A cheerful cotton lining closes with a drawstring.

"Extraordinarily beautiful, well-made handbag"

I literally gasped when I opened the package. This handbag is exquisite. The inside material is chocolate brown, light burnt orange, and light tan, and does in fact close with a drawstring--an ingenious way to allow the bag to remain fully open or to snug it shut for security. When not pulled closed, the top material lies neatly against the interior walls of the bag & out of the way. The outside of the bag is tightly woven in a pattern similar to the picture on the Novica website, and the bag itself is sturdy & sits nicely upright due to its flat bottom. The bag is not too big, not too small, and its easy to carry. I bought it for a beach-side wedding this summer, and its just perfect. It seems so well made as to last me the rest of my life! Thank you for a such a unique & beautiful item.
