i designed this envelope clutch/computer case last year with my mother after she attended the east malaysian handicraft convention. my mother had three bags made by a woman who makes shoes for jimmy choo (who is also from malaysia ;) the material used to make the bag is called songket. it is a malaysian/indonesian hand woven silk or cotton luxury material intricately pattered with gold or silver threads. songket is traditionally worn during special, ceremonial occasions by men and women. i love my two bags and hope to make more to sell them as well, i will keep ya'll posted. a
