case (general & multipurpose)

Rectangular beadwork case for a mobile phone, with a pattern based on traditional Dayak motifs. There are red, yellow and green motifs on a green ground. One side extends to form a fringed flap, which is secured by means of velcro strips on the flap and the main body of the case. A double strand of green beads, joined at intervals with a strip of red, blue and green beads forms a looped strap for hanging around the neck or shoulder of the wearer. There is what looks to be a price tag attached to the top of the case.
