Handmade Recyled Emerald Green Messenger Bag

Handmade Recyled Emerald Green Messenger Bag
£38.00 1 Available
Love this


I made this bag out of a recycled vintage wool Windsmoor coat found in Ilminster, Somerset, and lined it with cotton from a Laura Ashley skirt (predominantly blue with red and white flowers scattered across).

It features the original coat pocket built in to the design on the outside, and another pocket inside. It fastens at the top with a plain blue zip with a pull tag, and has a blue webbing handle so it can be worn on the shoulder or across in a cross-body style. A great size for walking, shopping trips, and city breaks as it folds away flat.

Because each of my bags 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 bag birth certificate.

If your bag gets grubby after a few months of bouncing around on public transport and out shopping, you can machine wash it on a gentle wool setting. All the materials I use are machine washed before the stitching starts, so they are used to it.

approx. 31 cm high by 24 cm wide
(contents not included!)

There are also some pouches and pencil cases available with the same fabric; see 'Pouches' and 'Pencil Cases' sections.
