A well-curated look courtesy of museum-inspired totes and purses. This colorful "Wild Mango" Tote, Cosmetic and Coin Purse Set is made with woven tapestry fabric that recalls materials found in the costume collections at the Renwick Gallery. An outer, full-length zip pocket plus a large zip pocket and two open pockets on the inside of the tote bag means there's plenty of safe spots for all your gear. The top-zip cosmetic purse has a full length outer zippered pocket for extra organization. The petite and colorful zip-top coin purse is a more attractive way to corral change, credit cards, or other small items. This set is designed, hand cut, and sewn in the USA.

Museum Story

There are over 50,000 objects in the textile collections of our National Museum of American History, Behring Center. The collections have two major themes: the production and use of textiles in America, and the evolution of textile technology through time. The collections, therefore, consist not only of fabrics, raw fibers and yarns, but also machines, tools and implements used to process them.

Customer Rating: 3 out of 5 "Wild Mango" Cosmetic and Coin Purse Set

I was surprised to have the same experience as the previous reviewer in that I, too, received two coin purses instead of a cosmetic purse and a coin purse. One of the coin purses was in the "Wild Mango" design, the other was in the geometric design. When I called about the mix-up, I was told the cosmetic purse was out of stock and was not going to be carried any longer. The representative was very nice and accommodating. I was instructed that I could keep both AND I was refunded the cost of my order. I don't understand why, in the new catalog, they continue to showcase the cosmetic purse! They should either get some more in stock or stop advertising it. That is false advertising! I am pleased with the coin purse. It looks as advertised.

Customer Rating: 3 out of 5 Beautiful bags--but I did not get the right smaller bag!

The Mango bag set I ordered was messed up by Smithsonian's Shipping Department, so while I received the larger of the set of 2 but instead of the smaller Mango bag, I received another larger bag of a different design! Understandable given the shortage of staff everywhere, but I am not inclined to trust another order to the Smithsonian until much later in 2022! Please fix your poor Customer Service so that others don't have their holiday 2021 orders changed on your site!

I love almost everything about this bag… except for the handles which are too stiff for my liking. They get in the way and would be much easier to handle if they were a softer fiber. Otherwise, I love the bag and am using it as my all around daily handbag. It goes with everything, except dressy evening wear which isn't a problem for me.

Love everything about this purse. It is beautiful, quality materials/workmanship, and very practical. Lots of great pockets. Perfect size. Easy to carry. Would definitely recommend to those that like organization in their purse, but still want it to be eye-catching.
