    Default Antik Batik Bongo Bag


    It has been a fun week looking at the new handbags out there. The rich berry color of the Antik Batik Bongo Bag really caught my eye. I love the rich berry color of this bag which is perfect for any season!

    The Italian born Gabriella Cortese is the designer behing Antik Batik. She learned dressmaking and embroidery skills from her grandmother before the age of 18. Balinese artisans taught her the skills of hand-dying and further enhanced her embroidery skills. The Bongo bag exemplifies her mastery with color and needlework!

    The Bongo bag marries the trends of fringe, sequins and cross body in a very striking and eye-catching way. Tons of detail and tons of "WOW". I'll start with the fringe. It's the perfect length! Not too long and not too much. The front is along the flap and edges of the bag. The woven cross-body strap has a 24" drop making it a longer version of this style. If it is too long, simply knot it at the top! I've seen too many bags "posing" as cross body types that are actually kind of short for comfort and at 5'3", any bag that purports itself to be a cross-body should fit me - of all people - comfortably! Then there are the sequin details. Just enough to make a statement, but not too much to get in your way, snag your knits or be too much to wear for day.

    At $345 from Shopbop.com this bag has alot of PUNCH for your budget!

    I do love the color, size and cross body style, but I would like this clutch a whole lot more without the fringe.
