Story Behind the Art:
An NGO of traditional weavers, UMBVS successfully changed the centuries' old tradition that forbade women from working on the loom. They started with a small group of 30 weavers, each equipped with traditional weaving techniques and personal skills, which have been handed-down from generation to generation. Now the organization has spread to 90 villages, supporting more than 170 families. The main weaving technique is done on a pit loom.
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.

Always read reviews first! I listened to the first two reviewers and they were correct. I got this bag for myself. I am 60 years old and this bag is going to be my treasure for a long time. I have tons of room for my wallet, keys, coupons, even a water bottle if necessary. It is so pretty. The fabric is tough enough to last and I was afraid of tearing like the last bag I bought. However, there is only one piece of fabric so that will not happen. The color on this is much mroe vivid than appears sop even prettier when you open the package. The last one was cute. I got it for myself and a young girlfriend too who liked it but the fabric tore where the pieces were sewn together. Can be fixed. That one is pink with a little circle of elephants on the front and beads around it.The price on this is unbelieveable for the use I will get out of it. Thanks Overstock. Again, read all reviews before you buy. Go with the majority of customers' opinions. This shoulder bag is one I will buy again for my friend.Read More
I was pleased with the purse: quality workmanship and materials. It did smell weird (not bad) like strong smelling dye, so I put it outside on a clothsline for a few days and then I decided to spray it with an outdoor water proofing spray to protect the cotton material and make it easier to wipe clean inside and out. I LOVE the look of the purse and have had many compliments. My only complaint is that if took longer than the fifteen days to arrive.Read More

First, I should say that I love the look of the bag. The colors are beautiful and the stitching is lovely. BUT, the first time I carried it (in the July heat), the color bled onto my white blouse turning it pink wherever the bag touched my body, and I wasn't even perspiring! I had to throw out the blouse because I couldn't get the color out of it. So, I'm not happy with that, but I will carry it in the winter when I don't think that will happen again.Read More
Never tried a cloth bag before, and I like it . Have gotten compliments and like the red color. The only problem is with the embroidery--some of it has pulled out and wonder if I can be careful enough to keep the threads in place. Mitigation may be called for. The button tab is not particularly useful.Read More
