Himalayan Vision

There are lots of Tibetan stores in the city, but this one stands out with its luscious silks from India, Tibet and Nepal. They also have a great selection of monks' bags and pashmina wraps in every color under the sun, lots of Tibetan jewelry with turquoise and coral, and more prayer wheels than you could imagine. Other trinkets, art and clothing with a Southeast Asian theme are also featured. I was seduced into buying a rather flashy orange raw silk hobo bag, lined with scarlet raw silk. Its tiny clones, in a myriad of striking color combinations, could serve as the hippest of all evening bags...
