Product Description

This wise owl will keep a watchful eye on your belongings!  Very eco-friendly, it is handmade in Northern Thailand from upcycled, beautifully embroidered Hmong Hill Tribe fabric.   Covered on both sides with 36 "feathers," each of which is a different piece of colorful fabric.  There's a full-width zippered pocket on the back and fully lined main section.  

Lightweight yet sturdy enough for the elementary-school set.  But don't limit it to them--makes a great and unique carry-all no matter what your age!

No two bags have the same combination of fabrics, so yours will definitely be one-of-a kind.

Approximately 12" wide x 13" high. Adjustable straps and drawstring closure.
