What is the length and width of the purse?
Such a pretty purse that I purchased as a gift for my friend. When I saw the box it came in in the mail, my first thought was "uh oh, how can that purse be in this tiny box?". UPon opening it, I see it's rolled up in half so tight that there is a terrible fold mark in the middle, and I'm not sure how to get it out. Also inside the purse are the information cards about the maker etc, and they are all wrinkled and cracked/folded. What a bummer. I like my presentation of gifts to be perfect. I will ponder the rest of the day and decide whether to keep this or not. People need to think!! I clicked "no" on recommending it to a friend only because of this issue....

'My name is Anchalika Chamnan, I come from northern Thailand. 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.'

I really love this bag... it's perfect in size and style and it's so lovely! I have one problem with it that makes me not trust using it after about 10 days... the stitching in the strap is failing. I can fix it myself, but that means the strap will be shorter... sadly reversing one of the reasons I chose THIS bag--the long strap.Read More
My daughter loves it. Unique and artistic design. The workmanship is very good. It's a really cool purse.Read More
This bag is lovely and unique. My only complaint is that it came rolled up tight, and even though I ironed it, it still kept the wrinkles. I gave it as a gift, so I'm not sure if they came out with time. I agree with other reviews that the clasp is very sharp, but that is an easy fix, since it is made of wood. and can be filed down.Read More
Just what I wanted, albeit smaller than I expected.Read More
Great little bag that I bought for a trip. I wanted something lightweight that could store the essentials. It's really unique looking, which I love. Others have noted the wood piece is a bit too sharp, which it is, but I haven't had any issues with it.Read More
Because the bag is small, it is very light to sling over one's shoulder - just exactly what I wanted. This bag has lovely hand stitched embroidery. It is attractive and nicely constructed. The clasp works well & will not come undone by itself. However, the pointed bottom of the wooden portion of the clasp is very sharp. Caution needs to be used when inserting the clasp so that the fabric is not torn. Also, if one has small children, I would advise sanding the pointed bottom to make it less sharp.Read More
Just the right size to hold all essentials, even your checkbook. Shoulder strap is handy when shopping. Have had lots of compliments on the size and color. Glad I ordered the shoulder bag.Read More

How to Care for Amber Jewelry
Amber is an attractive but delicate ornament. Popular for its deep golden color and natural patterns, amber decorates both antique and modern jewelry, from beaded necklaces to rings and earrings. Handmade amber jewelry from places like Poland, Thailand and India lends an eclectic look to any outfit. This jewelry requires special care, as amber is soft and can be easily damaged by even mild chemicals. If exposed to sudden changes in temperature, amber can crack or even break. For these reasons, care should be taken to protect amber jewelry when wearing, cleaning and storing it. With proper care, your beautiful jewelry will last a lifetime.
