Story Behind the Art:
'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.'

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.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Bag's colors were a tad bit darker, which is what I had hoped for.
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.
This bag arrived very quickly. It is a very attractive bag and looks just like it is pictured. It is quite spacious and I like the zipped pocket. I carried the bag this week-end and received many compliments and "where did you find that bag".
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.
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.

I bought this as a gift for my friend some time ago. It was very beautiful and I was tempted to buy one for myself. The purse is small, but it specifies the dimensions on the product detail so I was aware of this. She loved the purse but with average use it did not hold up very well. This back of it quickly pilled from being up against her body and some of the stitching came loose. I do not see her use it anymore.
