Handmade Recycled Stripes & Flowers Bag

Love this


This bag is recycled from some cotton curtains found in Sherborne in Dorset. They are a Laura Ashley design from 1988 and feature sprays of roses and leaves on a background of pale yellow and white stripes. The lining is taken from some cotton curtain lining and inside there is a lined pocket in the same fabrics. The straps are long enough to either carry in the hand or over the shoulder.

The box shape gives it some structure and it would be perfect to take to the beach, for a picnic, or on shopping trips. 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. This one folds away quite small and light so handy for weekends away too .

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.

approx. 35 cm high by 44 cm wide fully expanded at the top
with a base of 33 cm by 12 cm
