The rug is a handmade patchwork of several small tapestries. I loved that rug so much that it got me curious about the woman behind it. It turns out that the rugs are for sale for about $300 plus shipping and It also turns out that the woman, Esther, a young, hip and pretty thing from the Netherlands makes and sells purses on EshterMokka Hippetassen
I don’t know if you visited your local Macys lately but purses this year are all about folds, straps, rhinestones, tassel, more folds, bling. Purses have become quite the exterior sign of
poor taste wealth, a la Paris Hilton. I don’t personally own a leather purse, it feels like too much of a commitment. I love Esther Mokka's purses however because don’t take themselves seriously, and you can't be sure if they are gaudy, über hip, or both. I guess it depends who wears them: a twenty five year old model from Northern countries, or… me.
