This purse is made froma rare and special fabric:  a handwoven, delightful echo of both the beautiful Abalone shell itself and the aquatic aspect of the beaches it comes from is a very vintage motif by Greentree Weaving (about 30 years!).  The xxl Spiny Oyster shell button on the front is highly textured and colored  in a way that absolutely feels like the ripples of waves, an impression supported by the wavy contour of the front flap, as well. 

    Inside, The lining and pockets continue the watery theme, with a geometric batik print, and a wavy one, in beautiful blues.  A buttoned divider (with a real abalone shell button) compartment features an additional pocket with a smaller, hidden snap pocket inside.  The other compartment has two more pockets sized for cell phone and glasses.   

  Total measurements are 10.5" wide by 9", with a 57" strap for cross-body or shoulder wear.
