Filed under: Handbags
Chinese-inspired and channeling the wild spirits of animals like the bengal tiger and the racehorse, Nankeen's line of women's handbags is anchored in simple, classic shapes updated with unique creative prints. They're all on the casual side (even the evening clutches put off a vibe of 'upscale but relaxed') which is great for me since I rarely get really dressed up.
The bags are made of 100% cotton and indigo dye using a historic Chinese printing technique with hand-carved design stencils, then accented with beading, pearlescent shells, and other fun details. Plus at $95-$110 each they're priced low enough that you can have more than just one.
