The exotic woman's beadwoven face that adorns the flap of this artisan wine tote/purse is secretive and mysterious. Hide your own secret treasures within this unique purse. I call her my "Mandira Purse." She was inspired by the beading pattern published by Margie Deeb. I created it in luxuriant velvety reds, deep greens, purples and flashing golds.

The red velvet bag is a circular shape and closes with a drawstring cord that also doubles as the shoulder strap. So, to close it, simply swing it over your shoulder and let gravity do it's work. Then swing the flap over the opening. The flap is a teardrop shape with a red tassel at the point.

I created the woman's face by loom-weaving it separately, using hundreds of high-quality Delica beads. The process took weeks to create this work of art in itself. Then, I personally designed and sewed the velvet tote to display her face to the world and then hand stitched the beadwoven art to the flap surface.

This would be a discreet yet stunning way to transport a small bottle of wine to an outdoor play, picnic, symphony, or other specal gathering! (The tote looks even better when there's something inside to fill it out.)
