Outlet! Was $26.00!
Dazzling and shimmery, this little number exudes vintage style! Handmade 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 the original craftsmanship is preserved, each bag becomes a new work of art, and the women of the cooperative earn much-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 saris.

March 26, 2013 - I guess I should have read the dimensions of this bag a little more closely. The bag is SMALL and looks more like a child size bag then for adults. I could barely fit my wallet and cell phone. I chose the turquoise and it was very "washed out". Dull and uninteresting. Sad to say all of this because I really wanted to love this bag but it just didn't work out for me so back it goes. :-(
