The material for the coat and lining was purchased from MOOD .

The sleeves were a bit of a challenge so I made some adjustments.

I didn’t like the look without a color so guess what I did?

I drafted a color with a color stand. Whoo Hooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nadia talked to me for approximately an hour assisting me in my first purchase. Her customer service is top notched. We had a unique experience and not only did I purchase a bag I believe the bag was waiting for me. We even named my sample “PERFECTLY FLAWED”.

My delivery came with a special note of thanks.

I am grateful and without further adieu let me present – PERFECTLY FLAWED.
(This was a sample made with great craftsmanship and passion: my name for her has a spiritual meaning).

Each bag comes with a hand sewn button from donations around the world: I LOVE THAT TOUCH

I love Elephants: NO CIRCUS FOR ME

Well CIRQUE DU SOLEIL is fine!

This morning I watched the HBO documentary: An Apology To Elephants. It literally made me sick. No I’m not a member of PETA, yet Elephants have always held a special place in my heart. To me elephants were synonymous to Africa. They are huge yet quiet and regal. They are extremely smart and have a humanistic virtue of mourning.

Elephants mourning: extraordinary

The only way to train an elephant is to, first, break them down mentally. They are removed from their mothers early.

This is the hook that trainers/beast use to control elephants. They are poked or stabbed into submission.

Elephants are not meant to be tied to ropes for 19 hours a day. They are meant to roam.
