Floral Suzani Tote Bag

Regular price $165.00

This limited edition vintage 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.

Carol imports exquisite textiles called Suzanis from Uzbekistan. Hand embroidered Suzani textiles are traditionally made by brides for their wedding dowries. It’s a craft with centuries of history that has experienced a revival in recent years. Carol imports both vintage and new Suzanis for her creations.

This bag features a new Suzani showcasing brilliant floral motifs rendered in chain stitching. A careful examination reveals faint outlines of the hand-drawn pencil lines the maker used to outline the pattern.

We added a removable brooch made from two vintage resin buttons and a hand-painted mid-century West German glass button.

Your bag will be one of only five in the world.
