Here is a groovy purse that I knit. I used Lana Gatto- Caribu yarn which I believe has been discontinued. I bought the yarn because it was on sale and I liked the red and blackness of it. There is a picture of a cat (aka a gatto) on the label but I'm fairly sure that the yarn does not actually contain cat hair. I've also used it to make a pair of slippers and it worked fairly well because it knits up kind of rigid like. It does however have a slight exfoliating effect.
I made up the pattern myself because I like to do that sort of thing. It was inspired by purses from the 1940's and 50's and I am now knitting up another one (or two or three if I have enough yarn) in Filtes King Konny - a bulkier yarn which I also got on sale and which is also most likely discontinued.
