Jamaican Purse       
My object is a Jamaican purse that my aunt and my dad got for me in Kingston Jamaica. I use it for carrying things like money, toys, candy and more. The colors on the Jamaican flag mean different things. The yellow means the sun shineth,  the land is green and black is the people are strong and creative and friendship. The bag is made of fabric, string and paper. People in Jamaica are proud of their culture and their flag.  On the back of the bag it says Robin Ruth. Robin ruth is a company that makes bags all around the world. In some bags there's a  letter and it says “hello friend i will take care  of you and i hope you take care of me,we will have great adventures together. I will be in every picture you take we will have great adventures together, sincerely Robin ruth”.Also this bag represents Jamaica's 56th anniversary from their independence from the British August 6,1962. This bag costs $700.99 in Jamaican money in american money its $5.67 in American dollers. 
This bag makes me feel like I am back in Jamaica and reminds me of my culture.
