Kalaga Elephant Purple and Red Fringe Gypsy Bag

Kalaga Elephant Purple and Red Fringe Gypsy Bag is created in a chenille paisley tapestry in shades of brown and gold and trimmed out in thick purple bullion fringe.

The vintage Kalaga panel features embroidered Hindu God Ganesh focal point in a circle of string accents.   Adding to the charm and character of this one of a kind bag expect some occasional flaws as this panel is not newly created.  Lush burgundy string fringe outlines the fold over closure flap.

You’ll find a convenient cell phone pocket in the generous lining of polyester striped satin with a soft sheen.  An extra wide adjustable strap with leather trim allows you to wear cross body, hands free style.

Kalaga embroidery is an artform that emerged in the mid-19th century during the Konbaung dynasty in the reign of Mindon Min when velvet became fashionable at the royal court.  Typical tapestries are padded figures sewn with a combination of metallic and plain threads and adorned with sequins, beads and glass stones onto a background depicting a figure or scene, traditionally from Burmese classical plays.
