This handbag is part of The Candy Collection and was made in mind of those ladies who just can’t leave the house without a lot of “things” in their handbag. This is the largest of my handbags, so far. The background fabric is a beautiful brown shot with black silk taffeta, and just to be special has been delicately gathered at regular intervals to give it texture. The accent fabric is an embroidered russet silk duppioni and the flowers have been beaded using a Japanese square iridescent bronze bead. Just to give it some sparkle. This has pockets on the side and the front to slip your keys or cell phone or opera tickets in for quick retrieval. The lining of this bag is a very bright orange silk duppioni with plum silk duppioni accents. There is a large, zippered pocket that has the bags name and number embroidered on it as well as another ample sized open pocket. The closure mechanism is a magnetic square. Rum Raisins feet are charming little green pearlized square beads to keep it dry.

This bag measures 13” (33 cm) wide x 6” (15 cm) deep and 8 1/2” (22 cm) deep, the handle is another 9” (23 cm) long which allows it to go over your shoulder and keep your hands free.

This bag can be made again just for you and have your name embroidered on it – if you wish.

Cleaning Instructions: As this is silk spot cleaning by a very good dry cleaner is suggested. While not in use the bag should have the acid free tissue stuffing replaced in it to keep its shape, and kept in the clear plastic bag to keep dust off it.

Rum Raisin Ripple sells for $395.00.
