The workmanship on this product is very good, I'm very pleased. I purchased a brown one, too (with beads), my mother loved it so much, I gave it to her as a gift (the blue one)! She loves things with elephants, and even at 72, she still likes that bohemian look. As said, I purchased two ... because the price was excellent! It was like receiving Christmas gifts sporadically, because they were unable to ship all things ordered at once. It seemed like a real treat! I'm proud of these Thai women who live and work near Burma. I hope something contributes to their life as people in that area live under military rule, and are considered unequal.
