This handwoven purse was made entirely from rescued fabric scraps, organic cotton handwoven samples, and wool leftovers from manufactured accessories. It is a zero waste bag! Because of this, your shoulder bag is 100% completely unique, there is no other bag in the world just like it. The lining is 100% cotton quilting fabric. The bag is approximately 9 inches x 7 inches with a 2inch depth at base, when folded. Or 12 inches x 9 inches when unfolded. The strap can extend from 26inches to 44inches, perfect at any length to rest on your shoulder or carry by hand. The bag pictured is the exact bag you will be receiving - no two bags are ever the same.
I also created a tote bag featuring the same fabrics as this purse. Lucky you! If you want a matching set, you can check out the tote bag here, and purchase both at the same time for a discount!
About all my items:
This item was handwoven by me on a floor loom, mechanically identical to ones used in the 1800s. The art of weaving is considered one of the oldest technologies in the world, and the fundamentals have changed very little in that time. Each item is constructed entirely by me, and begins its journey as loose thread eventually transformed into whole cloth. Every strand of yarn is carefully threaded into the loom, and every inch of fabric is created by building one thread on the next, interweaving them to create intricate patterns. I love weaving precisely because of how tactile it is, and how much time I get to spend touching the yarn and enjoying the colors. Because of this, every textile I weave is a pleasure to touch and look at, and is a unique creation that represents hours of a labor of love, years of study and practice, and centuries of culture and technology.
