Hi, Suella,

The chains,chain mail and big coin arejust on the front of the purse, the back side is just smooth paint. That's the part that rubs against my clothes when I carry it.

Thanks for asking!



It looks a great bag. How do you stop the chains and mesh/coin etc from rubbing up agains your clothing and creating wear or piling?

Are you selective in what you wear it with?

Or is there a secret to carrying it?

Don't you just love those spontaneous compliments from strangers! They are so validating.

BTW--Really like the purse!

As you might know, we invented a glitter glaze that works on leather, manmade leather and fabric. It comes with a bottle of paint base and a little packet of glitter. Now, someone has to open the big jars of glitter that come from the glitter elves and spoon just the right amount of each of the 21 colors into their packets. Being the head honcho, Margot is that someone. Problem is, she's not the tidiest person in the Western hemisphere and after 20 or so packets, there are a lot of microscopic (but fetchingly sparkly) particles of glitter in her hair, on her cheeks, and decorating her nose. One day someone came in during this process and remarked, "This place looks like a glitter sweatshop!"
