We have incorporated carefully embroidered vintage hill tribe sashes in the assembly of these darling messenger bags. With the belt sewn onto the strap, and the tasseled, beaded ends dangling off the sides - the main applique swatch is affixed in the center of the bag to form an external pocket. The bag itself is four-ply Thai silk with a sturdy but flexible cotton liner. A single internal zippered pocket. You will have the only one on your block.
