Description

This handbag is made from vintage tapestry that i dug out in the dusty back room of a fabric shop! The reason I called it Ouma Dinki is because it reminds me of my granny. It is very plain with a metal strap and it is lined with shwe-shwe. It is so vintage and bright!

For all my handbags visit my blog: Adanna
