Hypnotic, brocade-inspired patterns and a lustrous, delicate sheen define these show-stoppers.

  • Brown, Burgundy, Green, Pink, Purple, or Turquoise
  • 12" W x 13" H (30.5 x 32.5 cm)
  • Handmade in and fairly traded from India

Crafted by a women's cooperative in New Delhi, India that creates purses from antique saris that would otherwise be burned to recover their gold or silver content. By putting old saris to use in new handbags, the original craftsmanship is preserved and each bag becomes a work of art -- and the women of the cooperative earn badly-needed income to care for their children and households. Expect each bag to vary and be a bit unique -- just like the women who once wore the original sari!

Shop Green!

Created to help women worldwide gain economic security for themselves and their families by earning fair wages for their handiwork, Global Girlfriend sources women-made, fair-trade imported, eco-friendly products. By supporting long-term partnerships with the artisans, it fosters equal employment opportunities, healthy and safe working conditions, technical assistance, and development strategies to help reduce poverty, one community at a time. Become a "Global Girlfriend" and help build a brighter future for girlfriends around the globe!

November 28, 2013 - Beautiful... fits an iPad with proper closure, an iPhone in the phone pouch, perfectly, with a zippered section for a wallet or other personal item. Very practical as a small purse. Not to be weighed down, however, per sewn in silk-covered handles.

May 22, 2013 - I ordered 2 turquoise, one for me, one for my best friend. They are so pretty and ornate. After reading some other reviews, I would clarify that this bag is small tote size, or purse sized. One reviewer must have a tiny laptop b/c mine wouldn't be close to fitting. Be aware there is only a snap enclosure, not a zip top which would have been nice. I am using it as a nice summer purse. It holds my big date book, wallet, phone, make-up, sunglasses, etc.,with room to spare.The colors and patterns vary greatly. My turq. bag was much darker & with a "non-flashy" design. My friend's bag was much lighter w/a very pretty jewel tone design.There is a zippered pocket inside the bag for keys, or whatever. Overall, you cannot go wrong with buying this bag. Grab as many as you can while they are on sale, and give them out as gifts, that's what I did.

May 14, 2013 - Perfect size, gorgeious. It has beads and sequins, but doesn't seem "flashy." It is a great size - what I would call purse-size rather than a tote bag. I bought the Purple and the background shade is exactly what they show in the listing. I'm so glad I bought it.

April 21, 2013 - Ordered the turquoise.... simply beautiful!!!!!

January 17, 2013 - Spectacular! The person who got it (green version) can fit her laptop in it, among other things. Extremely beautiful and useful.
