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"

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.

"Exquisite!"

Such craftsmanship! Such artistry by Wahyu Sulistiani. Her intricately beaded designs really stand out against the indigo blue background of the moderately-sized bag with a zippered roomy interior. All of my previous jewelry purchases from NOVICA have received many compliments, and I know that this handbag will too. [Product ID: 212255, "Glorious Java"]

Edith

her hand bags are so beautiful and such detail

Pat

Montana, USA

This bag is lovely! The fabric is beautiful and the beadwork is stunning. So intricate! I am replacing my old tote bag with this. Love the magnetic closure-very convenient. I found the overall color to be more brown than burgundy, but I still love it and can't wait to take my new bag to town.

Jennifer

Words cannot describe the exquisite workmanship that goes into these purses. I get distracted by the detail and skill every time I look at it, my most recent purchase is the red bag with the roosters...it also comes in blue (I'll order that next). Pictures do not do her work justice.
