Gajji silk bags

Gajji silk is a heavy satin silk fabric common in Gujrat, used to make wedding saris with Bandhani work on them. It has a rich sheen and is softer than other silk weaves. More recently this fabric has been used by the ajrakh block printers resulting in lush, rich, bright, printed silk. I was itching to use this fabric to make bags. The result is a small hand bag that can looks formal but not blingy. I have also combined it with mushroo, the other satin weave from Gujarat.
