These delightful little bags are made by the nuns who live at the active women's monastery near the famed cave monasteries of Vardzia, Georgia. It is such a beautiful, peaceful place. They are known for their embroidery work, which they only sell directly from their little shop near the entrance to the caves. They were delighted when I bought (nearly) the entire current display to bring back as part of my collection. The nun working in the shop that day, who had perfect English, told me, "Don't worry, we will make more." I just love them! Fantastic gifts.
