Velvet potli bags are small drawstring pouches made of velvet fabric that are commonly used as traditional accessories in South Asian cultures, particularly in India. “Potli” translates to “small bag” in Hindi.
These bags are typically handmade and feature intricate embroidery, beadwork, or embellishments. They come in various shapes, sizes, and colors, and are often adorned with sequins, mirrors, pearls, or zari (metallic thread) work to enhance their aesthetic appeal.
Velvet potli bags have a rich and luxurious feel, thanks to the soft and plush texture of velvet fabric. They are commonly used as accessories to complement traditional ethnic outfits like sarees, lehengas, or salwar suits during festive occasions, weddings, or other celebratory events.
