The colorful printed cotton we associate with traditional West African dress goes by several names, which hints at its complexity: Ankara, Dutch wax print, and Java print. Originally produced in Holland for sale in Indonesian colonies, the fabric found a bigger audience in West Africa, where many now consider it a symbol of cultural pride. The name Ankara orginated when the Turks began producing their own version in imitation of the Dutch—Ankara (formerly known as Angora) is the Turkish capital. A patchwork of sky blue and vibrant orange decorates one side of this bag, crafted in a small studio in Nigeria. Stiffened cotton with bamboo accents and magnetic closure.

Made in Nigeria. 17"W x 11"H x 4"D.

        Lovely handbag to carry around, but I couldn't get the oil smell out from the inside of the bag. Unfortunately had to send the bag back

        India is home to more than 1,300 species of birds, from colorful kingfishers to graceful shore birds to the stately peacock. The fanciful bird on this supple leather handbag is inspired by the Common Kingfisher and the migrating birds that visit the Gudavi Bird Sanctuary in the southwestern state of Karnataka.
