Handmade Recycled Tartan Pencil Case

Handmade Recycled Tartan Pencil Case
£9.00 2 Available
Love this


I made this pouch out of a recycled length of kilt wool in a green and blue tartan with strips of white and black. A bit of light googling leads me to think that it's a Douglas tartan. It is lined with cotton from a city shirt in white with a purple and green check design, and fastens with a plain blue zip.

You can use this pouch for loads of different things. I use mine to bring some sort of order to all the flotsam and jetsam that swills around in the bottom of my bag. The long, thin size makes it a great pencil case and / or a spectacles case.

Because each of my pouches started as something else (a wool kilt, a tweed jacket, a cotton shirt) they come with a unique numbered card that shows what they used to be, and where they came from – a sort of pouch birth certificate.

All fabrics are thoroughly washed before being reconstructed, and this pouch is machine washable on a wool setting.

approx. 9cm high by 21cm wide

Handmade in Hammersmith Pouch no. 436


I always forget to make a note of the tartan when I rip apart old kilts to make these bags and pouches; so then spend hours googling various 'tartan finders' to get the name right. I'm pretty sure this one is a Douglas tartan, but look forward to being corrected by affronted Scots if this isn't right.
