    Story Behind the Art:
    Jiap Rojjana's parents are poor farmers who worked hard to send their children to school. 'However, I knew it would be too much for them to send us to university. When I heard there were jobs in northern Thailand, I set off. The idea of working with textiles came after visiting a silk shop. The colors and patterns mesmerized me! I bought some cloth to make myself a dress. With scrap pieces, I made a few cushions and gave them to a friend, who liked them so much she ordered more for her friends. So it started. Eventually, I became able to support my two children and even had some money left over to send to my family.'

  • Cute, but not sturdy

    I've had the bag about a week and the decorative string on both sides of the handle have come unraveled and the handle itself is beginning to tear off. I understand it's just a cloth bag, but ripping and falling apart after one week seems a little much. But it IS cute, so I'll sew it back together. I wouldn't recommend it to someone else though.

  • Not quite, still nice.

    The bag was smaller than I had anticipated, - it is more purse than tote or sack - but it is a good bag nonetheless. It's very pretty, well made. I haven't had a problem with the button coming off (so far) as other reviewers have had. There's a small zippered pocket on the inside which is convenient for keys or phone or somesuch. It sits up nicely due to the cardboard reinforcement on the bottom. It's a nice little bag; just don't think it's a slouch bag or a tote. It's about big enough for two regular sized paperbacks to ride side-by-side, plus your keys, wallet, and odds-n-ends.

  • Cute but fragile

    I get compliments on this bag practically every time I wear it out. However, the bag is NOT very well made. The yellow braiding around the top strap started coming loose within days of receiving it. I finally just tossed it. Then, the seaming between the top and bottom started coming apart. I had to pay to have it restitched. All of this within the first month of owning the bag. I still love it, but I worry about what's going to fall apart next.

  • Emerald Green Shoulder Bag

    This fell apart three days later. Please do not order this unless you can sew. It fell apart. I would not recommend this to anyone.

  • Undecided

    I am undecided about this bag. I love the color and the elephants but overall it reminds me of a rag rather than a nice purse. The fabric is soft. It arrived terribly wrinkled. The bottom of the bag has no reinforcement to create a bag shape. I have not used it yet and don't feel good about going out in public with it.

  • Loved it...until it fell apart

    I thought this purse was adorable online. I'm a yoga teacher, and I thought this looked like the ultimate yogi purse to be seen around town and in the studio with. When it arrived it had a neat little certificate describing the artisan and I thought the detail work was great. However, within 10 days the shiny elephant silk fabric surrounding the body of the purse began coming unstitched where the seam meets on one side of the purse. I would have gladly stitched it back up myself, except that it is stitched from the inside and I can't get to it without cutting a hole in the purse material itself. I'm not much of a seamstress...which is why I buy purses and don't make them. I'm going to ask for a refund, and I'm seriously disappointed.

  • Thai bag

    I take the bag almost every where, when I can consolidate my colors. Have received positive WOWS. Makes you feel good that you picked an item everyone can relate to.

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? It matched my clothing.
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. very good
    • How accurate was the sizing? fine Its a green bag that stuff gets stuffed into and holds quite a lot of stuff.

  • Disappointed

    I was excited about this bag but disappointed when it showed up. The button was broken and there was no pieces of wood in the box or packing materials, so this says to me they actually made this bag with a broken jagged edged button. The material is rather rough and the color was not as bright as I thought it would be. The color is more of a mix of white/grey and overall green threads. I thought the material would be more shimmery. Overall it's a cute design but I was disappointed. It was my first time buying something on overstock so I am leery about buying anything else in future.
