I missed the chance to buy this adorable and exquisite Chinese zodiac paper-cut bowling bag from Sonjz (a Japanese brand) made of glossy patent leather which is one of the key trends of 2011 half a year ago. When I saw it displayed in the shop window again today, I couldn't help but buy it without hesitation. The bag design was intended to conform to Chinese tastes. Red is strongly associated with happiness and prosperity in China, and the Chinese paper-cut zodiac is a traditional Chinese art form. This Chinese inspired bag surely makes a fashion statement for women such as me who admire Chinese elements in modern design.
