    Comments about UncommonGoods Vietnamese Floral Embroidered Purse:

    I had previously ordered the recycled sari bag and loved it, but wore it out (after several years.) I didn't want to buy the same thing again, and the one con of it was the lack of a closure - if the bag fell over in the car, stuff spilled out. I looked through the different options and landed on this bag. I love it! It's roomy enough for my usual purse items (wallet, small cosmetic bag, phone, brush) and also my iPad when I want it. And it zips! I was worried it would be too big, but it's not a weekend size. It's extremely soft and seems well made.

        Comments about UncommonGoods Vietnamese Floral Embroidered Purse:

        I got this for my sister for her birthday. She loved it! It is about 17" wide and 14"high, so a little bigger than a small purse. It is great to throw a few things in if you are going to an outdoor concert, to the store or to workout. Also, can be used for going on a date night. All around great purse and versatile. Great colors too!
