Pretty appliqued bags with an exotic Far-Eastern vibe, in homage to Shanghai Tang's fabulous east-meets-west designs. Roomy circular Tote and neat mini Hobo bags use a mix of rich fabric for the bodies and real or faux skins, or felt, for the appliques, with additional nail head & metal ring trim, and self straps.
Bags are versions of the classic tote so that are designed to be worn slouchy & open; however we have included patterns for an optional interior closure strap for the bags.
Both bags are lined and feature optional phone & zippered pockets and handbag feet.
