Description

three things

one zipper
one length of jute webbing
one piece of fabric

They all came together in my mind one night and the bag practically made itself. The entire piece of fabric is used. As is the zipper. Nothing wasted.

The jute has fabulous body. It looks rough but it is surprisingly comfortable to hold – an advantage of a natural fibre. And the last photo highlights the subtle black on black leafy pattern in the weave.

Finally… a bag that fits everything I need for the day!

    This is really nice! I like the contrast of the smaller bag with giant handles. I like the shape of the bag, too.
