Shop Announcement:

Thursday 6th August 2020 - thankfully, following a reduction in local Covid19 cases, I have been advised by the Government that I may, at long last, pause shielding from Monday 17th August 2020. I am therefore planning to re-open my Folksy shop on Friday 14th August. To keep outside contact to a minimum, I will only be shipping once a week - my apologies for any inconvenience this may cause. Please contact me if you have any queries.

Ivory Vintage Brocade Handbag

Ivory Vintage Brocade Handbag
Love this


A very special bag for a bride looking for an unusual 'something old' - made from vintage, ivory brocade woven with a pattern of chrysanthemums (whose meaning, in the language of flowers, is truth, fidelity, joy and optimism). Lined with cream sateen, it is finished with an ivory guipure lace heart and a diamante button. Concealed magnet fastening with an internal slip pocket. Comes with a genuine sixpence.

Dimensions (approximate) – 30 cm wide, 22.5 cm high (not including handles), 7.5 cm deep at base.


The brocade used for this bag started its life fifty years ago, as the skirt of my mother's wedding dress. With my parents' permission it has been carefully taken apart to be remade as a range of accessories for a new generation of brides. There is enough, i think, for half a dozen items in total.
