This limited edition fabric bag was handmade in Louisiana by Carol Ridenour, who launched her textile company, called Phoebe Rose, after retiring from her career as a medical doctor.
For this bag, Carol chose a new Uzbekistani Suzani textile that showcases a colorful floral motif rendered in hand-sewn chain stitching. A careful examination reveals the faint hand-drawn pencil lines the maker used to outline the pattern.
Suzanis are decorative Central Asian tribal textiles traditionally hand-embroidered by brides in preparation for their wedding day. It’s an art form that dates back to the 15th century and Carol imports both new and vintage Suzani textiles.
We added a removable bracelet handmade in our St. Francisville studio featuring beads of cinnabar, vintage blue, and white Czech glass, and lampworked navy glass.
Your bag will be one of only 5 in the world.
