Ruffled Riches

When you leave behind something important, it may leave you feeling ruffled for the whole day. But carry this ruffled shoulder bag with you, and you'll have the perfect accessory for keeping track of everything you need, and look brilliant while doing it. The one-of-a-kind bags are handmade by craftspeople in India from recycled saris. For each one, the layers of silk and rayon come in a unique combination of colors and patterns, ranging from jewel tones to earth tones. The bag has an inner lining of lightweight white cotton with a large central compartment and a single side pocket for quick access to your keys, purse or wallet. The clasp functions in two ways: there's a button and loop fastener, and a fabric cord that can tie the bag closed for greater security. Handmade in India.

Due to the recycled and handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

Great bag!

By 

from IL

Comments about UncommonGoods Sari Bag:

I just received my bag and love it! The colors are great! I was so worried about getting earth tones because I already have a similar bag in earth tones, but the colors were comparable to the website pic. I saw the previous comments where it was suggested to call and see if you could request colors and I did that; while the rep on the phone was very kind and looked into my request, they were not able to take any requests. So I took a gamble and am glad I did. I'm getting one for my sister for Christmas also.

I love this bag because it can be both casual or dressy. I used it all summer. It's the perfect size and very light weight. It's made beautifully. Prettier than I expected.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Sari Bag:

    My primary concern when ordering this, was the unspecified color of the bag. The bag I received was beautiful! More blues and pinks than the bags pictured, and I think it's even prettier than the stock photo. But even though I was conscious of the dimensions of the bag, I was still surprised at how large it was. This isn't the sort of bag you throw your keys and wallet into before heading out the door... this bag holds a lot of stuff. Great for a beach bag, or a mom with a million items to tote at all times. The bag I received was damaged. One of the strips of fabric was frayed and unattached. I don't feel it was a problem with poor quality, just that particular strip of sari fabric didn't hold well under the seam. I contacted customer service and they immediately rectified the problem. This was my first time ordering from Uncommon Goods, and I was so please with their service that I have already placed another order. Excellent company!

      The bag had a very musty smell - tried to air out but to no avail. Had to return - smelled like something left in the bottom of a hamper.

          Comments about UncommonGoods Sari Bag:

          I was warned by the description that the "color may not be as described" and it sure wasn't. The Sari purse was not pretty at all; only various shades of browns and tans. Not appealing to me at all and I was afraid that getting a replacement would result in another one the same. It's a shame, too; I really wanted this Sari! It was perfect in size, etc.

                I love it. It's large enough to hold my wallet and basic items as well as an outfit for my 2 year old (who is potty training). Great bag--so beautiful. I would love to have another pocket or compartment in it, but I'm very happy with it.

                    Comments about UncommonGoods Sari Bag:

                    My boyfriend bought this for me and it's absolutely beautiful. The fabric is fantastic and all the colors are vibrant. It's fully lined with a simple light fabric that works perfectly and has a couple pockets sewn into the lining.

                    My only complaint is that some of the edging stiching on the panels comes loose. It's not a big deal and isn't noticeable, but this isn't a bag to use if it's going to get a lot of abuse.

                    I've received a ton of compliments and I love supporting fair-trade artisans. I would highly recommend!
