This bag, designed by the fashion company Jamin Puech, screams sunny days and hot climate. It is a bag to wear into town after a day of sun bathing at the beach. 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 bags in limited editions. This dynamite fashion house targeted the young and the "young at heart." Their boutiques are in the most swankiest fashion centers in the world. No matter what your age, this "hot" small tote will garner attention and compliments. Smallish in size, it resembles a small tote since there isn't any internal closure mechanism. The material used is raffia, a straw like material that is woven into patterns and designs. The design is repetitive "fan" shaped motifs that is created with different stitches and is accented by a small stylized knob like flower. These fans are dimensional and give the bag depth. The bag has a "deco" effect since the fan shape was dominant in that era. The color is "blazing." It is a hot tangerine color, a bold, daring and deep orange hue. Color doesn't get more striking than this. The top of the bag is scalloped and the raffia on the flat bottom is woven into concentric ovals. There are two thin leather carry handles that are a chestnut brown. The drop is 5 1/2". These handles connect to the bag with streaked blond lucite rings. The inside is not lined. It really doesn't have to be. The black and white "Jamin Puech" cloth label is affixed inside. The inside and outside of the bag is in great condition. There are only a few indications of wear,especially on the leather carry handles, nothing at all significant. The measurements of the bag are 11"w x 7 1/2"h x 2'd. What a wonderful bag for beach side or pool side. Or even for cocktails in the lounge. Perfect for the"girl from Ipanema"or for any one seeking their day in the sun!
