While my friends were browsing in a boutique, a stack of woven bags caught my eye. The texture reminds me of the very desirable Bottega Veneta bag. I pulled a black one out and quickly asked for the price. Only US$6! Unbelievable.
It's made in Vietnam. I've seen street hawkers using similar ones but somehow I think it is fashionable when I carry it to the office. I'm a cheapo of course but it's roomy and durable, I could stash my laptop, books, shawl and groceries inside. I should have bought more!
