Asha Kantha Tote

Introducing Merlette's fabric handbag collection, a natural evolution of our signature techniques and sensibility. Working with artisans in India, we created unique basketweave smocking and Kantha embroidery patterns, incorporating our seasonal fabrics.

The Asha is an effortless cotton-twill tote that will quickly become a warm-weather essential. This handbag features an all-over Kantha embroidery, embracing a traditional craft technique that originates in Eastern India. This bag has over 90 hours of handwork per piece and features a falling tulip motif inspired by the Spring/Summer 21' Collection.
