• 80% woven silk, 20% woven cotton, hand-dyed ikat fabric

• Generously sized bag with zippered closure, and 2 deep internal pockets (1 zipped)

• Soft black with vibrant yellow

• Single long and wide suede shoulder strap with embroidered decoration, 25″ around

• Structured flat bottom, tassel decoration on sides

• 16″ tall x 15″ wide with bottom and side gussets: 6.5″ wide at bottom to 2.5″ wide at top

• There may be variations in the thickness of the yarn, which results in tiny slubs or irregularities. This adds character and uniqueness to the cloth

Occasionally, you may notice small irregularities in the weft or warp threads, such as tiny knots or variations in tension. These are a natural outcome of the weaving process and contribute to knowing that the finished textile is handmade
