A new little clutch, I just HAD to have ….

My name is Melissa and I am a shopaholic, or as I like to think I keep the global economy going. This is my new clutch ( larger than a purse/wallet, enough to carry my phone, mozzie spray, suncream, cash, scooter key, yet small enough to store in my scooter seat as I am paranoid about bag snatches) I now have a quiver of wallets, clutches and tote bags made with this bright embroidered fabric. What I am confused about is if they are actually imported from Thailand to Bali or are they Bali imitations of the Hmong style of embroidery? Does anyone know ? Either way I love them and you can get purses starting from about 80 000 Rup, clutches from 150 000 and large tote bags from around 320 000 in the Bali market stalls.hmong

  1. Hi Melissa. I came across your blog while browsing on embroidery subject. Looks like you are having a fab time living in Bali (who wouldn’t?! :-)). If you do like embroidered clutch / bag, come and visit my site widjabroderie.com 🙂

  2. Hi Little Miss Bali, just returning from Thailand and having bought a smaller purse version for a gift, I can confirm they are definitely Thai! And yes, I chose exactly the same print for about THB100 (approx AUD3.50). Could this be the start of a little business venture between no so little Ms Phuket and yourself?
