Handmade Recycled Tweed Bag

Handmade Recycled Tweed Bag
£42.00 1 Available
Love this


I made this bag out of a recycled Scottish tweed jacket found in Lewes in Sussex. The tweed is a herringbone design of black, brown, and cream and inside I have lined it with some very striking cotton taken from an original sarong (originally from Chennai in India but found in a charity shop in Ilminster in Somerset) in blue and brown checks.

This box shaped bag has an outside flapped pocket that was part of the original jacket, another on the side panel (originally the jacket breast pocket) one pocket inside. It closes at the top with a metal snap-fastener and the handles are sized so it can be carried in the hand or over the shoulder. Robust, practical and perfect for stuffing with books, umbrellas, water, purses, make-up bags, etc.

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.

All the materials I use are machine washed before the stitching starts and this bag can be machine-washed on a gentle wool setting.

There is a smaller messenger bag available in the same fabrics - have a look in the 'Messenger bags' section.

approx. 30 cm high by 43 cm wide at the top
with a base of approx. 30 cm by 12 cm
