Mosaic Bags with a story and a history. Pieces of art, with a story to tell which are oh so beautiful. Each bag is handmade, providing an income for remote villagers.

G-Kismet offers numerous versions with two variations (envelop mosaic is the second variation which may be found under mosaic envelop). Before you purchase, be sure to view all mosaic styles. The pictured pieces are called crescents which are 9 inches long, 6 inches high, width of 2 inches wide. These bags make great gifts and will be appreciated by those with a social conscious or an artisan interest.

All have a delicate chain that may be used as shoulder strap or as a cross body strap. Chains may be tucked into the bag and the bag may be used as a clutch. I personally use the bags as a clutch. As soon as you place one of these bags on a table, compliments and inquiries will result. Great story and so beautiful.

Each bag has a metal clasp that secures the hinged top. Bags are lined with a felt material.

I have successfully placed a lipstick, keys, credit card holder, and a comb in mine.

The FIRST bag pictured is a deep red with turquoise accents. Lots of tin trim secures the design. A prominent lacquered stone is set in the center. Intricate trim surrounds all sides of this bag. This bag looks great with dresses, jeans, suits, and evening attire. Pick one color to focus on and select a bright solid shoe to compliment.

The SECOND bag is a beautiful bag comprised of bright turquoise stones, trimmed with heavy patterned metals, defined by bright red/orange ceramics. This bag is stunning when coupled with a turquoise necklace and earrings.

The THIRD bag featured is a quiet, subtle mosaic in blue with pearlized stones and metal. The pattern is subdued, and the pattern is balanced between circles, mosaic, and metal. This bag looks great with denim, navy, and red ensembles.

These beautiful mosaic bags are created in the northern tribal region of Pakistan. These bags were originally created from the rubble and debris left after a massive earthquake that killed thousands. Left without homes, crops, and supplies; the villagers sifted through the rubble locating broken ceramics, tiles, etc. These mosaic bags were created to generate revenue and feen families. Today, the villagers still make these bags using repurposed materials, new materials, and unusual objects. They are beautiful and a conversation piece when carried. I personally own four variations and LOVE them.
