A few months ago I was at the consignment shop and two bags caught my eye. They were both of leather. brocade and chain. They were both brand new, one was blue and the was other black, it is the one I am wearing today. 
Of course I went into inquiry mode as I picked it up and began to look inside for materials, country of manufacture and brand. In this case there was none.  
So I began to check the newspaper it was stuffed with. The newspaper was in Turkish and the date was 2014.  Mystery solved.

I don't think I would recognize Turkish if I saw it, so it would have still been a mystery to me! I do love the bag though, the brocade stands out against the neutrals here.

What a pretty bag, it's so nice with your monochrome outfit! Interesting how you could learn a little about it even though it had no tags too! :)

Hope that you are having a nice week :) I wrapped all the Christmas pressies yesterday, so excited for Christmas :)

Lorena, first of all Merry Christmas, I wish You good health and a lot of inspirations :) More global wish - peace in all the world. (...) Sometime I am going to Turkey, weather condition in october is perfect, prices are low. There are a lot of nice and cheap clothes and accesories there, many fakes unfornately. They use good quality of cotton. Your bag is great, but I think it would be perfect in baroque or splendor outfits, no as alone dominant.
