Review and giveaway: Galilee Silks

I have a bit of a weakness for pretty things, particularly jewelry, shoes and purses.  However, I already own a good deal of items in each of these categories, so I try to refrain from purchasing more.  So I get really excited when I have the opportunity to review something pretty- all of the fun, none of the spending guilt!  My newest beautiful thing is a gorgeous purse from Galilee Silks. Here's some information on this company, from its website:
Galilee Silks is a leading silk designer that specializes in the hand-dying of raw white silk and produces a distinctive range of unique Judaica textile products, fashion items and silk accessories.
Our factory is located in Kibbutz Beit Haemek in the northern part of Israel, and we have distribution operations in the USA.
Among our designs are fashion items including jackets, skirts, sarongs, scarves, necklaces, T-shirts with silk applique×™, gifts, and Judaica items such as unique designed Tallitot (prayer shawls), with Halachically approved fringes, Challa and Matzo covers and more.
Galilee Silks was founded by Shlomit Azati, its managing director, as a single employee crafts business. Today, it’s Israel’s leading silk designer and hand-dying factory, employing over 20 specialists.
Galilee Silks makes a number of gorgeous, handmade products, but being the purse/handbag addict that I am, I gravitated to that section when choosing what to review. In the end, I chose this beautiful shoulder bag

I'm happy to report that the bag is even more beautiful in person than in the picture. The colors are vibrant, the design is beautifully done, and the fabrics are so luxurious.  This bag is a great size to carry several books and a notepad- which I plan to do when attending a women's conference this weekend! 

And I have great news for you guys! Galilee Silks is offering a $50 gift certificate to one of you.  Open to everyone! This giveaway is a little different from others I have done, so read carefully!
