Name: Subtle Yao Shoulder Bag
One of my favorite bags, this one has a sophisticated color palate, in part, due to its wear. It is embroidered in silk on handspun, handwoven, indigo dyed cotton, with a small amount of commercial cotton applique. The bright sun has faded the colors into a deliciously resonant gold, burgundy, and purple on a pale blue back. The panel is mounted on a deep indigo-black cotton body and strap.
Size: 11 in. wide, 11.4 in. deep
