Handmade Recycled French Flowers Bag

Handmade Recycled French Flowers Bag

Love this


This bag is recycled from a vintage curtain that I found in Sauveterre de Bearn in the French Pyrenees. A great deal of internet searching has not revealed the actual vintage but the side of the fabric says it is 'édité par Marignan pour Florine'. The plain white background features pale green leaves and pink flowers with pink stripes. I have lined it with plain white cotton taken from a curtain lining found in Bridport in Dorset and there is a pocket inside made from the exterior fabric. The straps are long enough to either carry in the hand or over the shoulder.

It would be perfect to take to the beach, for a picnic, or on shopping trips. It folds away neatly to take on weekends away. 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 setting. All the fabrics have been washed already in their original state, so they are used to it.

There are some large pouches and a wash bag available in the same fabric - have a look in the 'Pouches' and 'Wash bags' sections.

approx. 40 cm high by 43 cm wide
with a base of 31 cm by 10 cm
