This is a vintage, possibly 1970's, handmade braided rug bag, purse in navy and white. Starts out as one braid going around and around to form the bag, handle and a flower design on the front of bag. Lined with navy rayon/silk type lining and a zipper added to the top opening as shown. Measures ten and a half inches by ten and a half inches. In wonderful vintage, collectible condition with no rips/holes to the lining, but there are worn/eaten by moths? spots mainly on the outer back of bag. Tried to show in photos, but did not come out well. Does in no way take away from this wonderful vintage item from the past. I would say this is from New England as braided rugs were a huge thing back in 60's, 70's and lots of women took to making their own.
