Object Description
Woolen multicolored handmade tagari tote bag. The bag has pink, maroon, and green stitching along the edges, including the top. The strap of the bag is red, with tassels on the end made up of the same colors found in the design (yellow, orange, fuschia, teal, green, and burgundy). The outermost color of the tagari is dark blue, with red zigzags, followed by teal, then pink, then green. Inside of this, there is a red border around designs in all of the colors. The design is biggest at the top of the bag on one side, which uses the colors of purple and green. There then is a smaller piece that is pink and blue, followed by a slightly smaller piece of yellow and purple. At this point, the size standardizes. The yellow and purple piece is followed by green and white, then pink and purple. At this point, the pieces get bigger again. The next piece is orange, purple, and blue, and is at the bottom of the bag. The design continues on the other side. The bottom piece is orange, purple and yellow, followed by a narrow orange and blue piece. Then the top piece (which is rather long) is rellow, green, pink, blue, and purple.
This tagari was made by the donor's mother, Panayiota Spartin. William Spartin was born in 1934. Notes:excellent example of traditional tagari design in bright hues of yellow, orange, fuschia, teal, green, and burgundy stripes.
