Velvet Clutch Bag W/Wrist Strap - Walka - Tjulpun Tjulpunpa (Wildflowers From The Bush)
This velvet clutch bag with wrist strap is a cross cultural project, designed in Australia and handmade in Kashmir.
The design is applied to the velvet by Kashida, one of the oldest Kashmiri handicrafts. It is applied to the velvet by hand with the help of a small "aari" hand tool similar to a crochet hook. The clutch bag contains bright satin lining, with a small zipper pocket inside for smaller items, and a wrist strap to leave you hands free.
This design is owned by Daisybell Tjalumi Kulyuru.
