Story Behind the Art: 'My name is Jiap Rojjana. When I heard that finding a job in northern Thailand was easier compared to my modest village, I set off to see after getting my high school certificate. The idea of working with textiles came about after visiting a silk shop. Such a wide range of beautifully colored, intricate cloth patterns mesmerized me. With the scrap pieces I made a few cushions and gave them to a friend, who liked them surprisingly so much, that she wanted to buy some to give to her friends. Eventually I was able to sufficiently support my two children and had enough money left over to send some to my parents, brother and sister.'

The bag arrived quicker than expected and was truly beautiful. However, within one week of use the button clasp fell off and was lost and now after 3 weeks the metal adornment is coming undone and bending out of shape. The bag has also torn at the seams near where the enclosure used to be. I has high hopes for this bag, but it just wasn't durable enough to last.

I had a few problems with this bag, but then again I didn't expect it to be amazingly sturdy because it is handcrafted. First, the bag was a bit smaller than I'd imagined it would be, which is my fault for not looking at the dimensions. Secondly, around the third day I carried the bag, the metal plate and plastic beads decorating the front of the piece began to fall off. Eventually I just removed all extraneous details. Though the quality of the bag was somewhat lacking it is still a pretty piece, and I carry it often. Hippie fabulous!
I recently purchased this bag with a giftcard my friend had given me. I absolulty adore the colors! The bag matches with almost everything in my wardrobe and makes a great summer tote. The material is sturdy and can be fully stuffed with anything from make up to clothes to bottles of soda (for the beach). After looking at the price for the first time I doubted if the bag would actually be worth what it costs, after all it is a little bit on the pricey side, but when i received the bag in the mail I found that the quality of the bag was completely satisfactory. However, it does look somewhat bigger than it really is in the picture and was smaller than I expected. DO NOT FORGET TO READ THE "DETAILS" SECTION FOR THE MEASUREMENTS! Overall this is a very nice bag and i would recommend it to anyone who wants cute and sturdy at the same time.
This bag was purchased for my dauughter. Then I got it and wanted it for myself. I am older and thought it was perfect for her. NO! I HAD TO HAVE IT! Then of course I had to go back and order another for her. She flipped too. She is 25 and her I am 59. So now all of my friends and hers want one, we will not tell where we got them so we can surprise them for Christmas. They are lightweight to carry and yet will hold a ton. Has an inside zipper pouch. Comfy soft shoulder strap. So easy to carry. Looks very cool. Metal circle design with mama and baby elephant and a coconut shell flower button closure. This is one of the best purchases I have ever made. Thanks Overstock!!!!!

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Wonderful.
I just love this bag.
let me just say that the way it comes wrapped, so delicate, it makes you almost NOT want to unwrap it and use it.
It was wrapped in a very raw kind of paper with the shell of leaves glued to the paper.
This is a one of kind bag....I want more of them and will get more of them soon....they would make VERY beautiful gifts at a very good price.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? YES
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Material not as thick as I would have liked but for the price I paid I could not complain.
How accurate was the sizing? very...fit my Ipad, wallet, wristlet, umbrella, and scarf with room for a bit more....
