4 ZIPS FINE SILK CROSSBODY SMALL Khmer Cambodia
Yes, 4 zips. Zipped main bag as well as 2 front zipped pockets and one vertical back zip. Handmade from fine silk with cotton lining containing one open pocket.
Silk is a natural, strong fibre as it has great tensile strength, which allows it to withstand a great deal of pressure. Being tightly woven, this bag is very strong.
Cambodia's golden silk is spun from the cocoons of golden silkworms, rather than the white ones found elsewhere in the world. Our silk is washable, souple, strong, soft and shiny. It is cool on a hot day and warm during the cold season, lightweight and pleasant to wear.
Handmade by artisans affected by landmines or HIV.
Measures 23cm x 17cm, strap length 120cm.
Fair trade, eco-friendly, sustainable.
Washing instructions for silk -
1. Place the garment in cold water with a gentle detergent, as silk is like hair, a gentle shampoo will also do the trick.
2. Give it a stir, and let it sit for just a few minutes. Silk releases dirt quickly, so the process doesn't take long.
3. Next, drain the soapy mix and rinse with cool, running water.
4. Pat off excess water with a towel and allow to dry before putting away.
