Thai Shoulder Bag from Novica #Review #LannaForest

     I adore handmade things.  If I could afford to buy solely artisan-made things and fill my life with them I would.  But I'm mostly a thrift store, consignment shop kind of girl.  I only splurge every once in a while, and usually on other people.  When I do, I almost always go for the fun artisan type things.  Wooden boxes, handmade clay objects, things like that.  They are so beautiful.
      This shoulder bag that I just got struck me as particularly stunning.  It's a green bag made from a beautifully textured cotton fabric.  It's not a large bag, but it's got so many features that are fantastic and intricate.  So let me go over some with you.
     First of all, the fabric and design itself is wonderful.  The textures of it all, from the bare fabric to the embroidery and the cross stitching, it's beautiful.  I love how the white embroidered snakes rise up from the bag.

     Then you have the decorative button on the front, which to my surprise is in fact a functioning button.  A fabric loop wraps around it to keep the bag closed.  The button is designed to be a coconut flower and is accented with burns in the wood.
     The shoulder straps are cinched together and wrapped with a golden cord, each end having 3 wooden beads.  The beads are lighter than what's in the stock photo on Amazon, these ones are very pale in comparison.  The cinched straps give yet another wonderful texture to look at and looks lovely.  I can't wit to see how my sister likes it when she sees it on Christmas.
     What do you look for in a bag?  To learn more, check out Novica on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google +, or on their website at Novica.com.
