silk brocade handbag

The leather handles are from Bali, the Chinese dragon brocade is from a market in a temple near Patan, Nepal.

I bought the turquoise and gold brocade silk sari from a wedding merchant in Bangalore. Who knew the IT hub of India would yield such a wealth of rainbow silks?

Of course not all of these were bought at once - but they have been languishing in a cupboard until now.
