Versailles Sling Handbag
Achieve effortless elegance with a gorgeous bag that calls to mind the opulent design of its namesake city and palace. An appealing mix of style and durability - as great for traveling abroad as it is perfect for storing all of your travel essentials - including passport, camera and currency.
Each bag is block-printed and made by a women's cooperative in Cambodia aimed at abolishing the horrors of human trafficking. Despite international recognition of the issues and efforts to prosecute sex tourism, sexual slavery is still pervasive in Cambodia and Vietnam. Creating handicrafts is a way for women to earn a living and lessen their vulnerability to prostitution and human trafficking, and access to Western markets gives them a better opportunity to make a livable wage.

December 20, 2013 - This is a sweet little bag. It is durable and beautiful. The size description is accurate. It's about 2" deep, as well.
June 16, 2013 - I love this bag! I don't like large or bulky bags. This one is just right as it gives me the pockets & space I need without bulging out. I put a knot in the shoulder strap to make the right length. It does take a beating and is washable.
