For example, I love the "Katie" knit drawstring bag (pictured left in the navy, $65, available at beautiful wishes). It also comes in cream, olive, and black. Based on recent pictures in People Magazine and Us Weekly, knit handbags are one of the "it" items for the holiday season. It is profiled on Big Buddha's website here.
In addition, Big Buddha offers large handbags made of faux leather (aka PVC), such as the "Kirsten" bag (pictured right in the cream, $90, available at eBags). The "Kirsten" bag also comes in black, brown, red, and tan. I also love this ruby colored bag (on sale for $63.99 at eBags).
