Wow! This bag has it all.....creatively designed by the fashion company Jamin Puech, one look and it astounds. Benit Jamin and Isabelle Puech joined forces in the late 20th century and created a fashion accessory line that stressed a Bohemian flair often using mixed materials producing handmade handbags in limited editions. This dynamite fashion house targeted the young and the "young at heart". Their boutiques are in the most swankiest fashion centers. I guess I fall in the "young at heart" category because I can't get enough of their unique items. This bag is on the large size and is essentially soft structured. It is rectangular in shape. Mixed wooden beads strung in methodical patterns cover the entire bag. Most of the beads resemble small beans while others are smaller and rectangular. There is an unique border that has openwork and is an interesting accent to the bag. However, there are two additional elements that "steal the show." There are dangles of cube like beads covering the lower middle portion of the bag. These dangles are fluid and provide movement depth. What a wonderful embellishment! But its not over yet. There is a large beaded rose flower attached to the top of the bag. The diameter of the rose is 4". The flower has dimensional petals and is attached by a mechanism that I believe can be opened and the flower positioned in a different spot and removed entirely. The beads are colored in pastel hues of yellows, green, white, pink and cream. The colors are soft and pleasing. The outside border is entirely a brownish color. There is a ruffled leather border trim at the top of the bag. There are two carry straps with a drop of 9". The straps are attached with oval plastic rings. The straps and the ruffle are done in a mocha brown leather. There are two thin ties capped by beads that tie to close the bag. The inside is lined with a brown satiny fabric. There are 2 open slip pockets which are border with ruffles. The "Jamin Puech black fabric identification label is affixed inside. The inside is in great condition with minimal signs of use and age. The measurements are 15"w x 9"h x 2"d. The bag is in wonderful condition without any significant issues to mention. In its soft and feminine manner, this bag makers a strong statement. Love the craftsmanship that creatively made this bag. So interesting, unique and timeless! Condition: Excellent VINTAGE Condition
