A bag made from an old curtain bought in a second hand shop. I wanted to make a bag similar to the traditional full-grain leather bags, which teachers often use, – just with fabric as material – and if possible, also climate friendly.
I used 4 layers of fabric for each part of the bag, and made the bottom out of leather (to make it more resistant to dirt and water).
It´s difficult to explain how I did, but I can tell, that I sewed the 4 layer of fabric together on my machine, and sewed the pieces together by hand (very difficult and hard – won´t do that again!).
I used the measures from a bag from the label “decadent”
An old curtain, sackcloth, leather, bias binding, brodery thread.
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
