There is so much history to this bag, I absolutely adore it! About thirty years ago when my grandparents were in Egypt, my granddad had this bag specially made for my nana! It is made with real gold leaf and has her initials inscribed on the front and the inside is made of a soft camel coloured leather. I wore it with an Egyptian style dress to a friends wedding and it got more attention then any accessory I've ever had!! I just hope that I can pass it on to my granddaughter one day.
