This Pyramid Purse is made from cotton fabric that has been hand dyed into a batik pattern in Ghana, West Africa. Each purse has a center velcro and 2 Ghanaian Glass Bead closures. Batik is a fabric with special colour patterns and is usually handmade in an ancient craftsmanship. After painting hot batik wax onto the fabric it is usually dyed several times to get its specific design. The cracks in the batik wax make the fabric look special.
Batik has a long history and was been passed on from generation to generation with every part of the country creating its own unique styles. Still today the traditional technique is passed down from mother to daughter who earn their money with this unique artwork.
Each purse measures 16"(L) x 4" (W) x 8.25" (H). Each purse is lined with a solid cotton fabic. The handles are made from 7.5" bamboo hoops.
