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.

I am completely in love with this bag. I saw this in the catalog and thought it was a great idea for a great price. Plus I was ready to break out of my black-only purse habit. I had no idea what colors to expect as each one is unique, but I am SO pleased with what I got. The bag has a large capacity and the straps fit comfortably over the shoulder. I'm so happy, I may even buy another one. Also thinking about them for gifts for others.

I bought this to replace my previous patchwork purse that was falling apart after 18 months of use. I expected about the same level of quality and length of time it would last.
I understand the nature of the upcycling meant that I wouldn't get the same fabrics as in the picture, but I was slightly disappointed that I didn't get ANY bright colors. That would have been acceptable, except that the serging done on the fabrics was not very sturdy and threads began pulling out of individual strips almost immediately. But the end of the first week, Two if the sections had pulled completely off, so I now have a hole in the side where two of the strips are dangling.

I will be trying to get a replacement. I hope that it was just a poor choice of upcycled sari strips that made my bag fail so quickly. Based on the other excellent reviews, I expect to get a better one next time.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Sari Bag:

      Its too big and although I knew that it was basically an "open " top I was hoping for a better closure. So it won't be used as a purse...too easy for things to spill out.
