It caught my eye as soon as I saw it in the catalogue and was even lovelier than I had expected! Great colors, size, workmanship. I now want to order the Vietnamese Floral Embroidered purse for myself.

I haven't seen the purse, but my friend who lives in another state said it was perfect! She said it was beautiful and that she LOVED it. I read the other reviews and used them to help confirm that this purchase would be just right and thankfully, they were spot on! Thanks!

I was searching for an appropriate gift for the 80th birthday of a girlfriend and came across your website and this bag. I thought it was beautiful and since my friend is very artistic thought she would love it. Since I have not actually seen the bag but had it sent directly to my friend, I went by the very good reviews. My friend was happy.

This is an every day tote but it is a real attention getter when meeting friends for lunch. Gorgeous.

A Winner!

Very nice, although maybe too nice for something that should be practical. The inner lining is a bit loose and light (like silk). These are the only negatives however. Very nice colorful embroidery! And she loved it, and will use it -that's what matters most to me.

This bag is very pretty in person and is made well. I was a little surprised at how lightweight it is, but that's a good thing. I think I will be able to used it all year.
