Events and Announcements


PAN ASIAN BAGS…..   Pan Asian Bags in Chinese brocade and hand-woven, hand-dyed Vietnamese silks are being phased out.  With the incredible popularity of the modified Pan Asian Bags made exclusively from Obi and kimono fabrics, with the extra inside pocket and the longer overall length, the smaller brocade and Vietnam silk bags have dropped off in popularity.  If anyone is interested in the Vietnamese silk fabric I have left, and the Chinese brocades, drop me an email.  I do not want to be carrying  these fabrics in inventory by year end 2018.

FIRST PLACE AT ARTSPLASH!…..   Recherche was awarded First Place at ArtSplash 2018 in Tualatin, Oregon, this summer.  What an amazing honor and a real thrill for Recherche!
