Details

Peruvian artist Maria Ramos Sanchez crafts a charming cosmetic bag whose scene transports us directly to the Andes on a calm, sunny day. Small homes nestled among trees and flowers accompany grazing alpacas, while a single cloud and a flock of birds float overhead. The applique case with embroidered details is lined in solid black, and the reverse side is black.

"Bright Colors and Great Detail"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I found myself drawn to the meticulous detail in this zippered cosmetic bag by Maria Ramos Sanchez. I love the grazing Alpaca under a bright sun. I also appreciate that this case came with free gift wrap that includes a tiny worry doll adorning the ribbon bow. I now have a practical, attractive gift that I know will be appreciated by someone who is dear to me.

"A lovely portrait of a woman caring for her llamas."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is one of many items I have purchased from Ms. Sanchez, including a coin purse, a wall hanging, and a pencil case . She is an extremely talented and imaginative artisan. This bag has such a lovely portrait of an Andean woman taking care of her llamas. Her portrayal of the beauty of her country delights me and makes me wish I could visit Peru. If you study her applique work you will find many interesting and beautiful things. I truly love everything she has made and sent to me, and I thank her.

Best Uses

  • Wear this and you will be asked "where did you get that?" a lot
