Heron Tote Bag

Heron Tote Bag
£15.00 3 Available
Love this


Printed tote bag, with the same image on both sides, made from a strong woven polyester fabric, fully lined with plain black polyester, and with very strong black cotton webbing straps.


A matching greetings card is available.

This makes a delightful and unusual gift, especially for those people who love herons :-)

Bag size approx. 12 1/2" (310mm) square, with a bottom of width approx. 2 1/2" (60mm) across, and 1" (25mm) wide straps hanging approx. 12 1/2" (310mm) down from the shoulder.

This bag features a printed illustration of a grey heron standing up to his knees in a peat bog pool, in all the beautiful colours of the Scottish Highland autumn. The illustration appears in the second book in the Adventures of Algy series, "The Tree with a Golden Heart".

Reproduced from an original illustration by Jenny Chapman, © 2015.


Living on a quiet peninsula on the wild west coast of the Scottish Highlands, I frequently see grey herons standing by the side of the sea loch or the ocean, as well as flying slowly over the house and surrounding peat bogs. (The other day, on a drive back from the "local" supermarket 55 miles away by single track road, I counted at least 9 herons on the shore of the loch.) So it was perhaps inevitable that a stately grey heron would feature in my series of children's books, whose characters are drawn from the local wildlife. The grey heron typically stands motionless, just watching and waiting...

Unusually for me, the background in this illustration was created in Photoshop through a laborious process of drawing and layering, although the heron himself was painted and drawn by hand on paper.
