A symbol of old Siam, elephants are a favorite in Thailand. This cheerful pachyderm is intended to bring good luck. Painted by hand, it adorns a generous front pocket on a cotton sling tote. By Jiap Rojjana, the bag is fully lined and an inner pocket with zipper keeps small items handy. Yellow cords and rain tree wood beads adorn the strap, and both the outer pocket and the purse close with coconut shell buttons.
Because each is an individual work of embroidery art, colors and motifs may vary slightly according to the artisan's inspiration.

The Story behind the Art:
'My name is Jiap Rojjana and I was born in a province north of Bangkok. Although my parents are poor farmers, they worked very hard to send my siblings and myself to school. They wanted us to have a good education and to be able to achieve more than they did. However, I knew it would be too heavy a burden for them to send us to university.
'After high school, I began to make clothes and accessories with beautiful, diverse silk and cotton. I was doing something I loved to do. 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.'
