The handbag was born from the embroidery you see on the front. I have had this piece sitting in the cupboard for ages, unfinished and when someone commented on it I thought – OK a bag it shall become! It is very different, and while men seem to look at it sideways I have had some great comments from the girls!
It was really difficult to photo this handbag and give it the justice it deserves. So the picture is really only representative of it. I think its much better in “person”.
I would love to hear what you think..
The embroidery is made from vintage buttons, silk ribbon and cotton.
The bag is made from strong black cotton.
The handles are metal.
