Love this


This cosmetics bag, pouch, or coin purse is made from a vintage tea towel, all the way from Austria. Its bright colours show an idyllic country scene of the dairy Farmer and his wife out milking in full Tyrolean Folk dress. The scene has a mid century feel to the design, with its stylised illustrations and happy cows. It would make a lovely gift for someone interested in costume or folk dress, for someone who likes mid century design, or perhaps for a dairy farmer!

The fabric has been stitched onto cotton to strengthen it, but it is still a soft little bag.
It measures 21 cm long and 15 cm wide with a 21 cm red zip opening.
The lining is a green and gold patterned vintage cotton, and the back is made from recycled blue denim.
There is a little hook so you can hang it up and dream of the farm, and it is finished off with my own embroidered name tag.

I like to recycle. Your bag will be posted out using clean recycled wrapping from my hoard, and sent as Royal Mail 2nd class.


A friend found this wonderful tea towel for me at a local car boot near York. It has such a bright and bold feel with its idealised scene of rural life and wonderful Folk costumes. It really cheers me up!
