The Story Behind the Art:
'My name is Anchalika Chamnan, I come from northern Thailand. My hometown is renowned as a trading town and my family and relatives are involved in different types of trading. Even if embroidery is a traditional skill for the women in our area and everybody can do it, I still need to learn more about patterns to create more interesting pieces. I am glad that we will have the chance to display our work to the world. To show more work is not only a channel for us to earn more, it means we can have the opportunity to support people from our village by offering them more work.'
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

"What a beautiful purse!" This is what I hear from my co-workers and the ladies in the church. I'm NOT a shopper. I usually use one purse for three or four years...until it falls apart. But this beautiful, handmade purse just spoke to me saying "buy me and help a family in Thailand". So, I did. It is just the right size for my wallet, day planner, brush and cell phone. So there isn't a LOT of room for the extraneous stuff that was filling up my previous purse. I highly recommend this product. It is beautifully hand made.
This shoulder bag was a gift for my younger daughter; she is a great collector of purses, shoulder bags, etc. She especially liked the colors and hand work on the design. I would definiely recommend this vendor to my friends and relatives. She would just have liked the shoulder bag to be larger because she usually carries a lot of items in her purse.
I purchased two of these bags, one for myself and one for a friend. The front of the shoulder bag appears to be cross stitched by hand. Being a cross-stitcher myself, I know the amount of time and effort that goes into making something like this. It is absolutely beautiful work! It is also big enough to carry a full size iPad in. I love the bag and so does the friend I bought one for. I think that considering how much time went into making this bag, it was a very reasonable price and would highly recommend it to others.
the purse was beautiful, the needlewark was really nice. my problem is that the fabric was not very strong and didn't seem to hold up well enough for me. maybe for someone who doesn't put much in a purse.
it was very nice, though.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
Please tell us about the quality of the product. the main fabric of the purse was way too weak to withstand what i put in my purse
