Description

This bag was designed in Australia and sustainably handmade in North India exclusively for The Met Store by From St Xavier. Comes with a cobranded protective cotton drawstring bag for storage.

Our elegant clutch celebrates a striking five-clawed dragon embroidered on a silk brocade door valance and side panels (17th–18th century) in The Met collection. Its impeccable quality suggests that it once hung in an imperial residence. In Chinese mythology, the dragon has a number of positive associations. Here it primarily signifies the emperor as the Son of Heaven and the intercessor between heaven and earth on behalf of the people.
