Dutch Textile Rousseau Zipper Coin Purse
Although he never left France, Henri Rousseau imagined the flora and fauna of faraway places to create his lush jungle atmospheres. This tapestry was inspired by the thick orange grove and purple flowers in Woman Walking in an Exotic Forest. This oversize coin purse can double as a small makeup bag or carryall, and works well inside one of the larger coordinating textile handbags.
Designed exclusively for the Barnes Foundation, this fabric is woven on traditional Flemish looms, taking advantage of weaving skills learned from many generations of tapestry production, making your bag a one-of-a-kind piece of original art.
Handwoven textile. 4 inches high by 5 inches wide by 2 1/2 inches deep.
