A symbol of old Siam, elephants are a favorite in Thailand. This cheerful pachyderm is intended to bring good luck. Painted by hand, it adorns a generous front pocket on a cotton sling tote. By Jiap Rojjana, the bag is fully lined and an inner pocket with zipper keeps small items handy. Yellow cords and rain tree wood beads adorn the strap, and both the outer pocket and the purse close with coconut shell buttons.

Because each is an individual work of embroidery art, colors and motifs may vary slightly according to the artisan's inspiration. Made in Thailand.

Artisan: Jiap Rojjana

Artisan Jiap Rojjana Thailand's Jiap Rojjana got her inspiration after visiting a silk shop. 'Such a wide range of beautifully colored, intricate cloth patterns mesmerized me! I bought some cloth to make myself a dress. With the scrap pieces of silk, I made a few cushions and gave them to a friend, who liked them so much that she wanted to buy some to give to her friends. Eventually I was able to sufficiently support my two children and had enough money to send some to my parents, brother and sister.'
