Sexy...Chinese style ... BongoJazz.co.uk has sourced a vibrant and original collection of Indian and Thai bags. Many are hand crafted by the Hmong hill tribe who utilize thousands of years of tradition to produce stunning and colourful embroidered bags. Our Banjara range is a kaleidoscope of tribal colour, with ornate mirrors from ancient ceremonial tunics.

A gifted linguist, Mexican-born Mrs. Power speaks several languages fluently, and has travelled widely on the Continent.” (British Vogue, November 1949)Photo by Cecil Beaton.
