I think it’s going to be an “Indian Summer” here in Los Angeles, and by that I mean that I’m predicting above average heat over the next couple of months. We shall see if my meteorological forecasting skills bear out. In the meantime, I’m really fired up about my favorite summer accessory: this Banjara clutch purse made from patchwork Indian kantha fabric.

The Banjara people are considered the “gypsies of India” and the word Banjara is believed to be a combination of the words “Ban/Bana” meaning “Forest” and “Chara” meaning “Movers.” Their nomadic tribe has claims to the Hindu warrior classes of northern India and Pakistan, and they are known for their colorful and detailed traditional dress.

The metal coin details and the little beaded tassels on the corner are spot on, and make a perfect accompaniment to my silver tribal necklace from Windsor Store, don’t you agree?
