Multicolor hand-embroidered tapestry tote bag with leather handle.Inside is lined with one zipper pocket and one small pouch. Magnetic snap button closure at top. Because each bag is handmade, patterns will vary but coloring will be similar to what is pictured, making each bag totally unique!

There is a region in India called Gujarat - it is known for very intricate handwork of all kinds. The Patchwork Tapestry is one such example. It usually has brightly embroidered cotton Patches. They combine recycled antique saris, Indian bedspreads and wedding gowns sewn with Zardosi embroidery (the metal wires that we are using in one of the slippers). Kutch is another region within Gujarat that has its typical type of crochet, and Gujarati mirror and sequin work. Some of the patches are 80 to 100 years old and recycled to make these spreads.

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by GREAT! This bag is gorgeous and very roomy. I use it as my yoga gear it. The only two things to note that were different from what I expected...1) The inside material is black and not the pretty fuscia color pictured and 2) some of the outter stitching is already coming off so the qulited peices are sticking up. Simple to sew back on...but still for over a $100, I shouldn't have to be sewing things back together. I do love it and am looking forward to the leather strap to wear in more and more. The tassels are exactly as pictured. 9.6.2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by Beyond Disappointment. I hand picked my tapestry tote in a store, so I LOVED everything about it.. from colors, to embroidery patterns. I chose a tote that was a little more on the neutral side, but totally amazing. My bag had 12 of the little mirrored circles... 5 have already fallen off, or the little "mirror" portion has fallen off. (The "mirrors" are really just sequins.) I could have lived with that issue if it was the only one.. but it's not. The zipper pull on the inside of the bag fell off on the 2nd day I used my tote. On the 4th day I used it the beautiful strips of embroidered fabric have started to come un-glued. That's right, the fabric is GLUED on. I have included a few pictures to show what I am talking about. Too many problems with in 5 days to warrant keeping this bag, I am completely disappointed. 9.16.2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by You Can't Go Wrong This tote is just beautiful. I saw it in a store and they had 4 color options... all of which were just gorgeous. I found one with a lot more purples and lavenders in it that was totally beautiful. The others were all different from one another, but equally special. The size of this is great for daily use, and spacious enough for an overnight bag. This tote is fantastic and affordable for what you are getting. The details on this are truly incredible. 8.13.2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gorgeous Big, bright and beautiful. Adds colour and interest to any outfit. I use mine almost everyday and receive comments regularly. Don't expect it to stay perfect with lots of use though as it will start to wear and tatter a little as the tapestry has some loosely stitched bits and pieces. Anyway mine has been dragged about everywhere for 6 months and still looks awesome. It fits just about everything in it or hangs great with just the wallet, sunnies and keys. Like most big bags, it does tend to slip off the shoulder so I usually wear it over my head and across the shoulder when I'm at the markets or doing a lot of walking. Very comfortable that way. Think ill grab another soon. 9.26.2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Love the tapestry I really loved the tapestry on the body of the bag but the strap wasn't even real leather. 5.25.2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE IT Had to go to a store to pick this one out because I wanted to make sure I got the color scheme I wanted. Went to the free people in Philadelphia and got a really colorful one. Could be a little softer, but probably will get that way with wear, and I will be using this every day I can. LOVE IT!!!!!! 3.28.2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love! I absolutely love this bag. The colours are beautiful and rich, the leather strap is nice and thick and the little mirrors all over it add a little sparkle. The only thing to beware of is the size - its quite large (bigger then it looks in the pics, kind of like a beach bag size). i love it big, but i can see how it may be a bit much for some. 2.19.2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice tote, but not great. I have to say, I am a little disappointed with this tote. It is a beautiful bag with a wonderful combination of colors and textures, but after only using it for about a week, it's falling apart at the seams. The leather strap is very thin and feels as if it won't last very long. I believe that, for the price, this tote should have been put together a little better. I bought it with gift-cards I received over the holidays, but if I had spent my own money on it, I would have returned it. 1.22.2013
