Chinese style card bag

The cheongsam is a body-hugging one-piece Chinese dress for women, also known in Mandarin Chinese as Qipao and Mandarin gown in English. The stylish and often tight-fitting cheongsam or qipao (chipao) that is best known today was created around 1920’s and made fashionable by socialites and upper class women.

The buttons of Qipao are made of thread, every piece is stylish and unique. I was inspired by the amazing art of thread and made this Chinese style card bag.

It has handles so it’s easy to be “carried”.

As a bag, of course, it can be opened, you can put another card or just write something on it directly.
