I found the iridescent tile-fabric for this bag in a pile of old scraps in a factory-outlet store selling trims in Rhode Island. The sides are crocheted in a perfectly matching purple mohair wool, and the shoulder strap is a long upholstery cord in a similar color. The lining is a black silk trimmed with multicolored lurex threads bought in London, and the purse closes by means of a rhinestone-set zipper from the garment district of New York.

Size: Six inches high by eight inches wide by one inch deep, exclusive of strap.

Price: $125/SOLD
