The Lotus Purse is a cute purse, that is like a smaller zipper clutch bag, and therefore big enough to hold both your wallet and phone. With four beautiful appliqued lotus leaves on the side and a colorful braided handle, this purse really stands out amongst the crowd. Ideal for a daily carry along in your main purse for some cosmetics, your pens and note book, anything to keep separate. Or grab and go with just your essentials for a quick dash to the shops or to pick up the kids from school.
