Zarmisha ~ A golden flower, in Pashto. The reason we named it what we have - is that the beautiful zariwork that makes up the body of this beautiful bag. Apart from the mirrorwork and coinwork that is a part of a lot of these beautiful pieces - the highlight of Zarmisha is that the stunning zari laden work is something that shines in the Sun, is the focus of everyone's eyes in any crowded room!
That beautiful mirror work, hand embroidered and with he most beautiful contrasting beaded work that form the centrepiece, along with shellwork, and again, genuine real coins!
And it doesn't end there - it has the beautiful leather tassels that bring up the sides, the leather handle and uff - that beautiful strap, which is lined with asymmetric mirrorwork - the red goes so beautifully with the black!
