    Sweet whimsical top handle bag, carefree butterflies flitting about a colorful garden, hand embroidered in silk and metallic threads on a soft gray/icy blue silk dupioni background. Embellished with genuine semi precious stones - star rubies, garnets and green onyx, in the royal zardozi tradition.

    As butterflies are the symbol of transformation and change, this purse makes a great gift for someone who has undergone a life changing event.

    Zardozi is from the Persian and means "gold thread" . It is an elaborate art of multidimensional embroidery using gold and silver threads and embellished with precious stones. Zardozi had its origins in Persia and was introduced into India by the ruling Mughals in the early 16th century. It was used mainly to adorn the robes of the royal families. The city of Agra, home of the Taj Mahal, was the seat of the Mughal Empire and it remains a center for traditional handicrafts that had flourished under the Mughal patronage. Today, over 15,000 craftsmen still practice the craft in the city of Agra, making elaborate zardozi purses, belts, tapestries, jewelry boxes and garments. Stunning and unique evening bag!

    Dupioni silk is the most widely known silk and is made in India. It is a medium weight silk with a textured effect, that give each piece its own character.

    Fully lined, with two gathered pockets. Three magnetic snap closures keep contents secure.

    Measures 7 x 11 x 1 1/2 in . Due to position of snap closure, useable space is 4 x 11 x 1 1/2 in.

    Gorgeous with any pastel color outfit. Spring is in the air!

    So pretty and feminine!
