Details

Two colorful birds wing across this beautiful blue handbag from Wahyu Sulistiani. Created in batik on cotton, the sawunggaling motif depicts the king's favorite rooster, which is a symbol of Javanese beauty and power. Lavish beadwork is applied by hand, and the roomy tote — lined in black — opens to reveal a convenient inner pocket.

"Absolutely Gorgeous"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I purchased this handbag to go with a navy velvet outfit and also with a navy cashmere and silk outfit. Both outfits are dressy, but not what I would call formal. The bag works perfectly not only with both blue outfits, but there is also enough brown in the purse to go with a chocolate silk outfit, too. The hand beading is so beautiful. The blue cotton is a very thick material so it is a very substantial piece. The bag is larger than I had anticipated, but that is a good thing for me, as I carry a lot of items in my purse, and they all fit in this bag. Thank you so much, Wahyu, you are an incredible artist.

"Beautiful, but you must be very careful with it."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is a beautiful purse, however, you must be very careful with it. I am a bit hard on my purses because I take buses and the trolley. After 2 months it started to have some loose strings that I had to cut off. It is not meant to be used every dayy.

"Very useful"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I bought this set and broke it up to give to my visiting sister-in-law and two nieces. I needed a gift that would take up practically no room in their suitcases and wasnt fragile. These are so pretty! The batik patterns are lovely and its so convenient that they can be carrying in your purse when empty so you always have a carrying bag with you.

These beaded batik facemasks are made of beautiful fabrics with gold beading. If we must wear facemasks, we may as well wear something stunning and elegant. They are well made, and Im very happy with this purchase.
